What Can Neuromuscular Massage Treat?

Excess tension in muscles causing pain.

Restricted blood flow which delays healing.

Restricted range of motion in the joints limiting activity.

Compression of structures upon nerves causing sharp pain.

Postural distortion caused by overuse of muscles on one side, and underuse on the other.

Referred pain where trigger points of high electrical activity sends pain to other areas of the body.

Relieve the Stress of Chronic Pain with Neuromuscular Massage

One common cause of chronic pain is the distortion or deterioration of joints which compresses nerves and impairs circulation. If muscle or other soft tissue is deprived of nutrients, chronic pain is often the result.

Neuromuscular massage therapy helps to restore the natural function of joints by relaxing the muscle structure that supports the bones. If the muscles are unbalanced, joint distortion occurs. Neuromuscular massage techniques selectively loosen tight muscles and connective tissues to restore muscular balance and improve range of motion.

Chronic pain is often the source of body-wide stress. The inability to relieve pain adequately results in a cascade of stress hormones. In the case of chronic pain, neuromuscular massage can enhance the effect of the body’s natural endorphins which help to soften the perception of pain. Massage also lowers blood pressure and heart rate which may be elevated as a result of pain.

Neuromuscular massage can help in some of the most common causes of chronic pain including postural distortion, nerve compression or entrapment, restricted joint movement and fibromyalgia .
