Neuromuscular Physical Therapy


Neuromuscular physical therapy therapy is a solution that uses massage, mobility, stretching, and rehabilitation techniques for athletes and those who engage in a lot of sports and physical activity. It is ideal for the treatment of injury, injury prevention, and strengthening and stretching. Both amateur and professional athletes alike can use sports massage therapy to help them recover from intensive training and injuries, reduce pain, and to prevent further damage. It is proven to release and reduce tension in the muscles, as well as improve circulation and encourage the removal of waste products such as lactic acid.


At Get Back Health, we use time-tested, hands-on neuromuscular physical therapy techniques coupled with current science-based exercise programs all performed by our highly-trained, qualified, and experienced therapists. Neuromuscular physical therapy takes your entire body into account when dealing with pain and injury, not just the one area of complaint. So we use postural screenings, strength testing, and gait analysis as a part of your treatment and assessment to take in the entire body.


Our neuromuscular physical therapy sessions are 1 hour long and primaryly address the follwoing;


  • Injury; what is the nature of your injury
  • Strength testing; finding the weakness that led to the injury
  • Postural assessment; checking your mobility and possible injury risks
  • Neural entrapment and nerve compression; putting pressure on nerves from tight muscle tissue; manual therapies – massage, dry needling, cupping, soft tissue release
  • Gait patterns; running or walking on a treadmill, track or outdoors (if applicable)
  • Rehabilitation exercises; for Injury treatment, prevention and strengthening.
  • Myofascial trigger points; hyper-irritable taut bands within muscles – a knot


You may feel some discomfort during and after the session (depending on the nature of your visit, and if you have an injury or not when coming to see us) which is completely normal, but you should not experience any severe pain. We usually recommend that you rest after your session, and your therapist will advise you best on what to do following your appointment.


Additional Services


We offer a range of different services not limited to only sports therapy massage. We work with people in need of chiropractic care, offering a range of highly-effective chiropractic techniques to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference including decompression, acupuncture, electrical muscle stimulation, myofascial release amongst others.


We also provide spinology appointments, which is when our spinologists assist your body in realigning the vertebra to where the body wants them to go. This restores nerve communication with the brain so that chemical balance is achieved, thus increasing the performance of the individual having the procedure.
