 Neuromuscular Therapy  St Petersburg, Florida 

Neuromuscular Therapy

We offer Neuromuscular Therapy, although broader in scope can loosely be referred to Trigger Point Therapy,  at our St. Petersburg Massage Therapy Clinic.  Neuromuscular Therapy can help with pain and injury through specific and deep work on muscles, tendons ,and ligaments that me be involved  in pain or dysfunction patters.

Chronic problems or a new injury are both usually treatable with neuromuscular therapy.  Some of the many conditions that neuromuscular therapy may help are: low back pain, headaches, shoulder and hip pain.

Neuromuscular Therapy  uses sustained deep pressure at tender knotted points which are called trigger points. Many times these points are connected to other areas on the body rather than where there there is pain. These are known as referral points. Properly applied sustained pressure on the trigger points often results in a "release" which makes the patient feel better.

Janet Travell, MD was an early researcher of pain and dysfunction in her patients.  She found that many of the complaints of patients that sought her help could get relieve with sustained pressure on various muscles in the body.  She and Dr. Simmons wrote textbooks for treatment of myofascial complaints. " Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction The Trigger Point Manual" Upper Extremities and Lower Extremities" have been well read and practiced by our therapists.
