Musculoskeletal Support

The muscles and fascia are the tissues that hold the body in proper alignment. The state of these tissues affects the structure as a whole.

Neuromuscular Release Therapy is a collection of different “hands-on” soft tissue techniques that, among other benefits, treat alterations in tissue texture and tension. Most people think of muscle that is tight as being strong and a muscle that is loose as being weak but this is not true. There is a desirable range of tension in muscles and soft tissues. If a muscle stays tight for a length of time it weakens. This weakness can affect performance and lead to injury. NMRT focuses on the tissue that is injured and physically works it back to the texture, tension and movement it should have. > Physical Medicine

Acupuncture works on the principle of moving Qi and blood using needles, they stimulate areas that are particularly congested. Acupuncture is very effective at treating pain and restoring muscle function. During an acupuncture treatment it is important to massage and palpate to find the most painful areas that are causing the pain and then treat it. These areas are points of muscle tightness and act as trigger points to pain. Acupuncture used specifically to release muscle tension works synergistically with neuromuscular release therapy with positive results.  > Acupuncture

The Musculoskeletal Support Program focuses on:

  1. Remove the areas of muscle tension by breaking apart scar tissue
  2. Reset the nervous system with acupuncture to restore muscle function
  3. Replace the nutritional factors that contribute to muscle break down and scar tissue deposition
  4. Repair the muscle, ligament, tendon tissues

It is important to treat the environment inside the body that creates dysfunction to exist in the first place rather than the dysfunction itself.

The Program is Ideal for:

  • chronic or acute neck and back pain
  • decreased range of motion of joints
  • repetitive strain injuries
  • athletes that want to maintain peak performance and prevent injury
  • motor vehicle accident patients
  • patients who have never been well since a physical trauma
  • fibromyalgia and other myofacial pain syndromes
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • tennis or golfers elbow
  • patients who have been treated for a wide variety of muscle and joint problems with no long term results

The process of restoring muscle function involves many organ systems in the body and it is best to get assessed to see which system needs to be cleansed first and which type of supplements are best for you. > Getting Started
