 Modern Neuromuscular Techniques (Cover Image)

Another title in the 'Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques' series, Modern Neuromuscular Techniques (NMT) focuses on the assessment and treatment of myofascial trigger points using thumb/finger applications. It explains the significance of local soft tissue dysfunction in its relation to pain and more general musculoskeletal dysfunction. It goes on to describe clearly the ways in which NMT can be used in assessment and treatment modes to normalise such changes. A further application of NMT as a means of preparing joints for subsequent manipulative attention is also presented. The connection between NMT and other approaches such as Shiatsu and Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) massage methods, is covered. Both European and American versions of neuromuscular techniques (NMT) are detailed.
