Sports Injury Treatment Clinic
A diagnosis is arrived at by establishing the patients history and with a physical examination. This helps to establish a management plan. Our therapists are fully qualified physical therapists and fully registered with the association of Neuromuscular Physical Therapists they are also qualified Pilates and Aquatic Therapy Instructors.
Neuromuscular physical therapy is a very specialized form of manual therapy. A therapist trained in NMT is educated in the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular and skeletal systems. They will also have knowledge in kinesiology and bio mechanics and how to work in a clinical environment.
Neuromuscular physical therapy is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance to balance the central nervous system. In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body, very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. It is therefore necessary to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health. Neuromuscular therapy can be used to address the following:
1. Ischemia - lack of blood supply to soft tissues
2. Trigger points
3. Nerve compression
4. Postural Distortion
5. Bio-mechanical dysfunction
