Neuromuscular Physical Therapy involves the examination, treatment, and instruction of persons in order to detect, assess, prevent, correct, alleviate, and limit physical disability and bodily malfunction.
The purpose of neuromuscular physical therapy is to help individuals experiencing structural distortion, biomechanical dysfunction, and the accompanying pain that is often symptomatic of the underlying problem. It is used to locate and release tissue spasms and hyper contraction; eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain; restore postural alignment, proper biomechanics and flexibility to the tissues; rebuild the strength of injured tissues and assist venous and lymphatic flow.
Treatments are personalised to treat conditions as;
just to mention a few..
FROZEN SHOULDER SYNDROME
-is a condition that causes restriction of motion in the shoulder joint. For some reason the shoulder joint becomes stiff and scarred.
-Chronic pain; often have a subtle or vague symptoms that develop slowly and are long lasting. What begins as a small, nagging ache or pain can grow into a debilitating injury if it isn’t recognized and treated early. Chronic pain may contribute to decreased physical activity due to fear of exacerbating pain. Sleep disturbance, and insomnia due to medication and illness symptoms are often experienced by those with chronic pain.
REPETITIVE STRAIN INJURIES;
-the disorder comes from the injuries of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems that maybe caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression (pressing against hard surfaces) or sustained or awkward positions.
COMPUTER RELATED INJURIES;
-repetitive strain injuries, work related upper limb disorder, musculoskeletal disorder, fatigue, migraine headaches.
-fallen arches can cause pronated knees
-the meniscus of the knee joint can become pinched
-misalignment places stress on the ligaments which are bands of fibrous tissue that hold the joint together. Over period of time the stress can cause chronic pain and weakness.
-commonly known as “runner’s knee” IT band (the iliotibial band is a tendonous and fascial band that originates on the iliac crest-hipbone.) friction syndrome, symptoms include pain on the outside of the knee, tenderness and sometimes swelling.
