Fix the Problem– Not the Symptoms
NMR therapy begins with a complete biomechanical analysis of the problem area.
Proper body mechanics include:
- Healthy communication between the brain and the muscles, allowing for a strong and unencumbered flow of energy between the two. Without proper neurologic strength the muscles will not be able to contract properly, leading to imbalance and pain.
- Healthy joints: A healthy joint is supported by all the surrounding muscles. Even mild to moderately degenerated joints can become pain free if the surrounding muscles return to normal function.
- Elimination of scar tissue: Following an injury it is normal for scar tissue to form, but scar tissue is not functional tissue. Ligament, muscle and tendon will all stretch and contract to one degree or another. Scar tissue is essentially dead tissue and tends to ‘consolidate’ (shrink and contract) over time. This can create pain, weakness and limited range of motion in joints and muscles.
Most people have lasting scar tissue after an injury. This occurs for three reasons:
- Lack of proper nutrition: Without the nutrients needed to build healthy new muscles the body has no choice but to keep the scar tissue in place.
- Lack of proper recovery exercises: Very few injuries are given the proper physical therapy following an injury. Even minor injuries can lead to long lasting mechanical changes if not rehabilitated correctly.
- A lowered neuro muscular signal: After an injury the nerves can sometimes “dim” like a dimmer on a light switch. The muscle may still partially work, but not to its previous level of strength.
Once the area has been tested a therapy plan is produced to properly address all areas of dysfunction. The result is a permanent improvement in the area or joint that was creating discomfort.
Many of our athlete clients also use NMR as an athletic enhancement to naturally improve range of motion and power output to the muscles that are most used in an activity.
