Neuromuscular therapy is also called trigger point myotherapy. It consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of strain in the muscle (trigger points). The therapist applies pressure using either their fingers, knuckles, or elbow. Once applied, the pressure will remain constant for ten to thirty seconds.
Treating Tight Muscles
Using firm finger pressure on trigger points to release the knots, increase the blood flow and free up the tissue for better range of motion. Trigger points are often responsible for referral pain, tight mucscles, and poor posture.
