Neuromuscular techniques are a comprehensive system of non-invasive soft-tissue manipulation techniques, valuable in both a diagnostic and therapeutic application. Neuromuscular techniques provide the therapist with information regarding tissue tone, fibrosity, oedema and areas of soft tissue changes such as hypersensitivity, change in sensation or pain. Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) can move painlessly from investigative mode to treatment mode in an instant, if deemed appropriate. NMT is an important part of the multidisciplinary medical approach to pain, injury, prevention and post rehabilitation. As part of this multidisciplinary approach, referrals are made to, and received from, physiotherapists, orthopedic specialists, osteopaths, chiropractors, medical exercise specialists, general practice doctors, nutritionists, dentists, naturopathic practitioners, health fitness instructors, personal trainers and other physical therapists. In Ireland, NMT is included as a recognized therapy under the private health insurance offered through a number of leading insurance providers. This inclusion reflects the recognition of the efficacy of NMT as an important physical therapy. The neuromuscular therapist follows strict national standards and guidelines, code of ethical conduct and scope of practice.
In the hands of a qualified therapist, NMT may eliminate the cause of acute or chronic myofascial, muscular or osseous (bone) pain and discomfort. Through the application of neuromuscular techniques, which include soft tissue manipulations, intra-oral tissue release, myofascial release, positional release, muscle energy techniques, cranial manipulation and trigger point therapy, homoeostasis is restored between the nervous system, osseous system and soft tissue systems. Neuromuscular therapy enhances the function of joints, muscles, and the general arthrokinematics of the body. NMT can improve healing by facilitating the return of appropriate core (lumbo-pelvic-hip) muscle function throughout the entire kinetic chain. A special focus is given to the treatment of trigger points, local ischemia, neural interferences, postural and biomechanical dysfunctions, nutritional factors and emotional well-being. European NMT has embraced the orphan tissue fascia and the epidemic that is known widely as trigger points. A primary focus of NMT is to understand the formation, etiology and treatment of myofascial trigger points. In NMT, a special effort is made to locate the source of referred pain, including any perpetuating influences, and eliminating them while paying attention to correct negative postural patterns.
In summary, NMT incorporates the following: Postural Assessment and Range of Motion Testing; Full Body Kinetic Chain Assessment; Injury Scenarios and Differential Diagnosis; Fascia and Myokinetic Chains and Links; Orthopaedic Sports Massage; Soft Tissue Release; Positional Release; Strain / Counter-strain; Muscle Energy Techniques.
