Neuromuscular & Physical Therapy

 

Pain.
How can  Neuromuscular Physical Therapy help you?

Neuromuscular Physical Therapy or (NMT) as it is referred to is a fast growing and effective treatment method for alleviating soft tissue disfunction.

An NMT can help patients manage arthritis pain, promote mobility and day-to-day function, and stay active and independent in home, work, community and leisure settings. . Neuromuscular Physical Therapy offers a special focus on chronic pain and injury including musculoskeletal injuries related to physical activity but, unlike Physiotherapy, Neuromuscular Physical Therapy has a focus on the pathophysiology, aetiology and treatment of Myofascial Trigger Points.

The following section provides an overview of the techniques employed by a Neuromuscular & Physical Therapist.

List of Conditions that an NMT Treats:
