Muscle Tension and Joint Subluxation

Pain & Injury, Uncategorized on November 4th, 2010 No Comments

Muscle tension can cause joint subluxation which in turn can lead to nerve compression and resultant neurological symptoms such as numbness, tingling and paraesthesia. It is so great when massage and chiropractic can work together to resolve these common and painful situations. Neuromuscular Therapy can reduce  muscular tension and make chiropractic adjustments easier to apply, more effective and easier to tolerate. A skillful assessment that includes postural assessment, range of motion and health history can help guide the treatment plan and direct the selection of treatment techniques. Specificity is key to getting positive results and knowing the role that each muscle plays in the restriction of range of motion is critical for success. That is why it is imperative that massage therapists know their anatomy. I would love to hear other reasons why manual therapists need to know their anatomy inside and out.
