NMT practitioners analyze and chart dysfunctional postural patterns to identify the underlying cause of your pain. This is a critical step, because the body often refers pain to a location other than the source of the problem. If a treatment focuses only on the symptom, the underlying cause will go untreated, as will your pain. This is what sets NMT apart from traditional massage therapy: NMT treats the cause of the pain rather than just the symptoms, resulting in lasting pain relief.

Once the cause of pain is identified, NMT follows a specific protocol for rehabilitation:

  1. Eliminate muscle spasm
  2. Restore flexibility
  3. Restore proper biomechanics
  4. Increase muscle strength
  5. Increase muscle endurance
