Neuromuscular bodywork, also known as neuromuscular therapy (NMT), is a form of manual therapy. It is focused on treating soft tissue pain and dysfunction by addressing trigger points, muscle adhesion’s, and nerve compression.

Seven benefits of neuromuscular bodywork for joint pain include:

  1. Pain reduction
  • helps alleviate pain by reducing muscle tension along with relieving trigger points
  1. Improved circulation
  • the bodywork stimulates blood flow which helps deliver nutrients and oxygen which reduces inflammation and promotes healing
  1. Increased range of motion
  • NMT targeted bodywork can help loosen tight muscles and connective tissue improving flexibility and range of motion
  1. Decreased muscle spasms
  • It can help decrease muscle spasms and tension that often accompany joint pain. The therapy can provide relief and improve mobility.
  1. Enhanced nerve functions
  • The bodywork can relieve nerve compression and irritation which improves nerve function while reducing discomfort and pain in the joints.
  1. Stress reduction
  • the bodywork provides relaxation which can reduce overall stress correlating directly to positive impact on chronic pain management
  1. Holistic approach
  • NMT often incorporates holistic approach to address the root causes of joint pain

Neuromuscular bodywork can be particularly beneficial for individuals suffering from conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and other musculoskeletal disorders that contribute to joint pain. If you also receive an adjustment after treatment, you will achieve optimal results. Patients have received with great success receiving Ara’s neuromuscular bodywork along with Dr. Bendavid’s adjustment.
