Neuromuscular disorders can impact nerves and muscles, which may result in changes in your gait, balance, movement, and control. Neuromuscular Rehabilitation purpose is to support your maintenance of daily activities. If you’re looking for somewhere that specializes in advanced technique like Neuromuscular Rehabilitation, Bryn J. Henderson DO, JD. FACPE, CIME, and his team at Regenerative Medical Group Garden Grove and Orange, California, and Kirkland, Washington, are experts in delivering these safe, noninvasive therapies. Call Regenerative Medical Group today to find out more or book an appointment online.
Nerve cells (neurons) help regulate voluntary muscles by sending and receiving electrical signals to and from the body.
The peripheral nervous system, which includes all the motor and sensory nerves that link the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body, is affected by a range of conditions known as neuromuscular disorders.
Communication between the nervous system and muscles is disrupted when neurons become sick or die. Muscles weaken and fade away as a consequence (atrophy).
Many neuromuscular conditions cause muscle weakness and tiredness, which develops over time because of these diseases. Symptoms of certain neuromuscular diseases occur in infancy, while others appear in childhood or even adulthood. The type of neuromuscular disease and the parts of the body affected will determine the symptoms.
Some possible symptoms may include:
The nerves and muscles in your body work together to create movement. Nerves transmit information about where, when, and how quickly to move to your muscles and brain. Muscle movement patterns are learned and retained in memory over time.
Muscle movement patterns can be harmed when nerves or muscles are damaged or injured as a consequence of trauma or other medical or neurological disorders. RMG employs Neuromuscular Rehabilitation as one of its methods for assisting patients with neuromuscular deficits in regaining normal mobility.
Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Consists of:
Pain, inflammation, and swelling induced by surgery or injury can result in the loss of neuromuscular control. When these neurological systems aren't functioning properly, a person's posture is impaired, and many of the muscles in the afflicted area aren't functioning at an optimum level.
Therefore, it is important to re-establish proper kinesthetic awareness and range of motion of the Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar, and Appendicular skeletons, which help reduce many of the symptoms that a patient comes across during the rehabilitation.
Neuromuscular rehabilitation plays a major role in the rehabilitation process. By using proper technique, activities, and exercise, Neuromuscular Rehabilitation can help prevent an acute injury from becoming a chronic condition.
Strength and Conditioning exercises increase your muscular strength, flexibility, endurance, and Range of Motion (ROM)
Balance and Mobility
enhance balance coordination, mobility, and safety techniques for fall prevention
Neuromuscular rehabilitation is designed to help with stroke Rehabilitation
Key is to re-educate your neuromuscular system. Measuring limitations, enhancing Range of Motion (ROM), and ADL’s
