Neuromuscular re-education therapy
Spine and joint pain is a normal part of life. Usually, pain is minor and can be treated at home with medication and rest. However, severe spine and joint conditions cause more than minor pain. Some conditions cause neuromuscular disorders that make it challenging to complete daily tasks. Neuromuscular disorders affect the ability of your nerves and muscles to communicate with one another. They lead to issues such as weakness, atrophy, pain, muscle spasms and loss of coordination. Neuromuscular disorders make it difficult to live a normal life, but, fortunately, neuromuscular re-education therapy can help.
