Neuromuscular reeducation – say that 3 times fast!
While it may be a mouthful to say, it’s an invaluable resource for rehabilitating spinal injuries. This technique is not only effective for treating low back pain and neck pain, but it’s even more important when it comes to preventing these ailments from coming back.
So, what is neuromuscular reeducation? Well, it’s all in the name.
- Neuro – nervous system
- Muscular – muscles
- Reeducation – to educate again
The nervous system (brain and nerves) control every part of our bodies, including all the muscles. An injury to the muscles (car accident, etc.) disrupts this communication, which is a very bad thing.
This miscommunication not only prevents proper healing but can also lead to MANY problems in the future. We now know that proper long-term healing and tissue repair depends on reestablishing this communication.
