Neuromuscular Re-Education & Movement Training Program
Neuromuscular Reeducation is a technique used to reeducate the body to perform daily tasks. This requires a deep understanding of the biomechanical motion patterns involved in performing these tasks, so that they can be broken down into the most basic of movements. The patient first practices those basic movements until they are perfected, and are eventually reintroduced to the more complex components of the task. For example, if a patient has trouble opening a jar, they must first learn to grip the jar. Once they are able to comfortably make the gripping movement with their fingers, their next goal may be to perfect the twisting motion of the wrist. Eventually, through Neuromuscular Reeducation, the patient will be able to complete this daily task with ease.
