Neuromuscular Physical Therapy or (NMT) as it isÂ 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-dayÂ function, and stay active and independent in home, work, community and leisure settings.Â .
