Neuromuscular Re-Education Q&A

What is neuromuscular reeducation?

Neuromuscular reeducation at Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy uses physical therapy techniques to restore fluid body movements. Because nerves and muscles work together to produce movements, an imbalance in these systems can throw off neuromuscular function, diminish coordination and balance, cause weakness, and reduce your quality of life.

What are the benefits of neuromuscular reeducation?

The advantages of choosing neuromuscular reeducation at Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy include:

  • Increased strength 
  • Better flexibility
  • Improved balance
  • Less pain
  • Better coordination
  • More fluid body movements
  • Faster healing

The treatment uses a series of strength, balance, and flexibility training without invasive procedures or downtime.

What is neuromuscular reeducation used for?

Neuromuscular reeducation is often beneficial for people struggling with:

  • Nerve damage
  • Stroke
  • Whiplash
  • Balance problems
  • Neurological conditions
  • Muscle movement disorders
  • Pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Disability 
  • Poor coordination

If you experience irregularities in neuromuscular function or movement abnormalities, neuromuscular reeducation can maximize typical body functions.

Is neuromuscular reeducation right for me?

The Total Acupuncture and Physical Therapy team determines if you’re a candidate for neuromuscular reeducation after discussing your symptoms, medical history, goals, and concerns. They complete a physical and neurological exam, nerve testing, and imaging procedures if needed before tailoring your treatment plan.
