When an injury occurs, your musculoskeletal system can lose its ability to function normally, causing pain and a reduced range of motion. Neuromuscular re-education refers to retraining your muscles to function a certain way and improving motor control of a specific area. Whether it's a spine-related condition, knee injury, or shoulder injury, Dr. Jamnik and his massage therapists provide a comprehensive and personalized approach to each patient with consideration to the injury, medical history, and pain levels through neuromuscular re-education.
Neuromuscular Re-Education Techniques
We believe the best way to solve a physical problem is with a physical solution, which is why our team of experts use a variety of techniques and exercises to improve our patients' controlled movements and help them live a more active life. Neuromuscular Re-Education helps the body repair itself through very short, but effective, movements and stretches. Usually only held for no more than two seconds, each stretch is repeated about 8-10 times. This increases blood circulation and oxygen in your muscles and body. Another neuromuscular re-education technique involves using equipment such as an exercise ball. Exercising and strengthening your core and other specific muscle groups help you gain better control over specific areas of your body. Hiller Chiropractic is trained and experienced in providing neuromuscular re-education to patients of all ages with a variety of injuries and conditions.
Benefits of Neuromuscular R-Education
In addition to restoring your body's normal motor movements, neuromuscular re-education can help with the reduction of pain by strengthening your musculoskeletal system and relieving muscle tension. Another advantage is the increased range of motion. Some rest is important to allow an injury to heal properly, but too much rest and not enough movement can actually hinder your rehabilitation. Our experts get you moving again so you can get back to your daily activities and sports.
