Stiff muscles can sometimes be difficult to move. Sensitive muscle fibers that are painful to move will therefore reduce mobility. As a result, trigger points partially impair muscular contractions and this in turn causes the affected muscles to become weak.
Over time, reduced use of a muscle leads to muscle weakness. AltMD.com indicates that “trigger points prevent muscles from contracting correctly, making them seem weak,”
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) helps you regain muscle strength in a simple way, decreasing the presence of trigger points in order to restore the correct length of the muscle; therefore, restoring full range of motion; restoring muscular strength and endurance; re-establishing neuromuscular control; regaining balance.
Part of your session would integrate Neurokinetic Therapy which employs a system of precise muscle tests and has the ability to change the programming of the Motor Control Center (MCC) in the cerebellum. Correct the dysfunction eliminate the trigger point.
For example, if you are suffering from plantar fasciitis (heel pain when you first step out of bed in the morning), utilizing (NMT) to treat the muscles associated with plantar fasciitis to decrease the trigger points, decrease pain, increase flexibility, and restore function. This can be crucial for full muscular recovery. Muscles tend not to recover fully when given only time in which to heal.
