What Is Neuromuscular Therapy or Orthopedic Massage?

Orthopedic massage involves therapeutic assessment, manipulation and movement of locomotor soft tissue to reduce pain and dysfunction. Restoring structural balance throughout the body allows us to focus on both prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions. 

In neuromuscular therapy, the therapist identifies hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules or knots in taut bands of muscle fibers.  Compression of a trigger point/adhesion may elicit local tenderness, referred pain or local twitch response.  This therapy is for people who suffer with acute/chronic pain from stress or injury.
