Neuromuscular Therapy Cork

Neuromuscular Therapy Applications


This modality consists of a combination of European neuromuscular technique (NMTq), positional release (PR) muscle energy technique (MET) and a precise and thorough application of massage techniques from the American approach. A gentle but highly effective therapy. Workshops, talks, presentations and mentorships available.

Sports Massage Therapy Applications


Sports massage therapy utilises Swedish deep tissue massage techniques and modern soft tissue release (STR) guided by an awareness of injury scenarios and muscle imbalance. Workshops, talks, presentations and mentorships available.

 

Medical Exercise & Pilates Applications


This approach focuses on mobility, balance, neuromuscular efficiency, breathing and awareness. It is applied in various stages of gait and other movement patterns. Improvements in neuromuscular efficiency as opposed to strength is the primary goal. Regular movement is essential to long term treatment success.

Myofascial Cupping & Release Applications


Cupping has been extremely popular lately due to its us in the recent Olympic games. The cups won’t be attached in the same spot for an extended period. Oil / balm is first applied to the skin to lubricant the area after-which the cups are attached and moved along the body. The red bruising that can occur is the rupturing of small capillary vessels that regrow. To minimise this, gradual and minimal amounts of force are used in the attachment of the cups to the skin and again they are not left on anyone area for very long. where cupping is inappropriate, manual skin rolling and myofascial release (MFR) techniques are employed. These techniques are effective in encouraging glide in the superficial tissues of the body.

Trigger Point Dry Needling Applications


Mtrp dry needling is applied with fine, filiform needles. One of the commonalities between European Neuromuscular therapy, its American Version and sports massage therapy are trigger points. These myofascial entities have been shown to be an integral part of many painful conditions. Manual therapy methods are effective in the treatment of these entities. However, the use of a needling can be more efficient. This treatment can be used in conjunction with others or as a stand alone therapy relying on European Neuromuscular technique (NMTq) in the assessment process and for the identification of trigger points.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)


 This treatment method that uses micro amperage current, frequencies and the principles of biological resonance. Frequency specific microcurrent (FSM) is an exciting method for treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions. The frequency specific effect is remarkable and reproducable.

Workshops, talks, presentations and mentorships available.

 

 Taping & Strapping Applications


 Athletic Taping and strapping is useful for the preparation and treatment of common injury sites. It can be applied in the early stages of injury or to aid the return to sport. Taping for proprioceptive and lymphatic purposes is also available. We utilise zinc oxide tape, heavy elastic adhesive taping and kinesio/rock/vivo tape where appropriate and beneficial.

Business Aspects


Many neuromuscular therapists find themselves becoming accidental business owners. Knowing the options in setting up a business and how best to mininise risk and maximise sales through efficient service provision and effective tried ans tested marketing strategies is a an amazing head start to any practice. There are many business consultants out there but few with the experience of a neuromuscular therapist in private practice.

Patient Information & GDPR


Know what information is essentiall, helpful and unnecessary is important in any clinic. GDPR compliance is law now and that piece of legislation on others dictates minimum standards in regards to collection and storage of patient data and it’s subsequent use. Privacy statments and informed use of specific information not only ensures compliance that patient information is put to good use to maximise patient outcomes.
