Chronic Pain in Ireland is unfortunately a fact of life. We all know someone who has experienced persistent or is experiencing unresolved pain. There are many reasons why a person will develop pain that does not resolve within the typical inflammatory, repair and remodelling timeframe. This is expected to occur after an injury or in adaptation to overuse. Within Neuromuscular therapy in Ireland we typically address 10 factors that can contribute to pain or changes in sensation.
- The individual
- Psychological Stress
- Nutrition / Hydration
- Monosynaptic Reflex Arc
- Myofascial Trigger Points
- Neural entrapment
- Fascial Considerations
What we can offer is a unique perspective on pain. Typically our rational is both contrary and complementary to traditional approaches in pain management. NMTs are known for their manual therapy skillset and in particular their ability to reduce soft tissue restriction to movement. Movement is essential in the rehabilitation process but is preceded by or used in conjunction with manual therapy techniques to facilitates better movement. This helps avoid the training of poor movement patterns which can occur when ‘ideal movement’ goals are forced on patients despite individual restrictions.
