Following a significant injury, you may find that you have challenges performing tasks that were once simple for you such as climbing stairs, lifting objects or even walking. Neuromuscular re-education is a form of therapy that can help you relearn these activities of daily living so that you can move on with your life despite the injury.

Why Is Neuromuscular Re-Education Necessary?

When you initially learned to perform these daily activities, pathways were forged between your muscles and your nerves. As you became proficient, you were soon able to perform the activities without having to consciously think about the steps involved in walking or lifting your arms.

Following an injury, especially one that affected your brain or your nerves, these pathways can be broken. When this happens, you may find yourself struggling to perform tasks that were once second nature.

Neuromuscular re-education is a form of therapy that helps to restore these pathways or create new ones so that these tasks will once again become simple for you.

What Is Involved in Neuromuscular Re-Education?

Neuromuscular re-education may be part of a larger physical therapy problem prescribed by your Miami physical therapist. A variety of exercises are used to train the brain.

Some of the most commonly used exercises include various balancing techniques such as standing on one leg, targeted strengthening exercises and routines that use stretching to improve flexibility and range of motion. Massage therapy performed by a qualified Miami massage therapist is also frequently incorporated in neuromuscular re-education therapy.

Who Can Benefit From Neuromuscular Re-education?

Along with people who are recovering from nerve or brain injuries, others who benefit from neuromuscular re-education include:

  • People with fractures or muscle tears
  • People with disabilities that affect their muscles such as cerebral palsy
  • People with degenerative bone or muscle disorders such as arthritis or multiple sclerosis
  • Athletes, dancers or others who want to improve their flexibility, balance or range of motion
