Many of us take the relationship between the body and mind for granted. We do not think about all the subconscious signals that are being sent from the brain to the rest of the body. Neuromuscular re-education essentially deals with actively creating new signals or recreating signals which have been lost through injury.
Patterns such as walking and speaking are learned behaviors, which means that we are capable of relearning them even after most serious injuries. Some injuries cause damage that makes walking in the gait to which your body is accustomed no longer possible. Neuromuscular re-education can create new subconscious patterns so you can learn to walk with a different gait.
Neuromuscular re-education is a type of massage therapy. It is commonly used to treat issues with movement, coordination, loss of kinesthetic sense and more. Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness also uses neuromuscular therapy as an aid to treating other injuries in many instances. We believe in providing our patients access to the best range of treatments and therapies available.
If you have impaired movement or balance, Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness can offer you neuromuscular re-education as a treatment option. Past patients who have undergone neuromuscular re-education have shown significant improvements. Once the mind and body establish new patterns, there are very few examples of the person reverting to the previous stage of impairment.
The therapy works through the triggering of receptors which receive signals from the brain concerning movement. For example, if the way you walk is impaired, your therapist will target the receptors that control the various phases of gait.
If you think that neuromuscular re-education could help improve your movement, contact Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness today. We will bring you in for a full movement profile assessment and then your therapist can move on to providing treatment.
