Neuromuscular Re-Education In Charlotte
Accidents happen every day and those involved may have suffered minor injuries, but if they were lucky, the injuries are not serious. Some may have required physical therapy to recover. What happens if you are in an accident that results in serious and life-altering injuries? A therapy called neuromuscular rehabilitation is an option for people who have been seriously injured in an accident.
What is Neuromuscular
The brain and body share an intimate relationship. Your brain controls everything that happens in your body. Your brain is a complex computer. It allows your body to do everything, from walking to writing to breathing.
Your brain sends signals to your legs when you want to go for a walk or do other activities, such as sending out nerve signals. It tells your muscles how fast and how strong to move.
These pathways aren’t indestructible. However, they can be permanently damaged or destroyed if you are involved in an auto accident. You might feel like you want to walk but your brain can’t effectively communicate with your muscles to do so.
Neuromuscular rehabilitation is a technique that retrains the nerve connections between your brain, and your soft tissues. This allows them to communicate effectively with one another in everyday movements such as walking or waving.
Physical therapists use a variety of techniques and exercises to accomplish this task. To help stimulate muscle activation, a physical therapist might apply pressure to areas that are not working properly. This is called trigger point therapy and active release.
You may be asked by physical therapists to do certain exercises to strengthen your muscles and improve your coordination. This will help you retrain the link between your brain, muscles, and your brain.

“Ginger has been so helpful with my injury of more than 10 years, I can’t remember the last time I felt this good. I was feeling significant improvements after our first appointment – and it’s because she’s great at what she does, but also because she was the first person to LISTEN to me. I knew where my pain originated – and she’s the first one that believed me, now my pain is the least I’ve ever felt and getting better with each visit. She truly wants to help you get better, not keep you as a forever client, which I really appreciated. I’ve spent thousands on chiropractic and wish I had found Ginger sooner. She’s responsive, available, and truly a caring person, exactly what you need when you’re dealing with any injury or issue!”
“I came to Ginger for PT after I was involved in a horrible car wreck. I had so many injuries I was walking with a walker with platforms for my broken hand. I was an avid runner, cyclist and swimmer. I was told that my knees were so badly injured that I would never run again. It was a very emotional time for me. Ginger worked with me and was very positive about my returning to running and all the sports that I loved. She was very knowledgeable, professional and fun. Not only did I get better and returned to running, biking and swimming, I had fun in the process and made a friend for life. In fact, Ginger has treated my husband and 2 sons as well. I have been treated by other physical therapists in the past, and I can tell you that Ginger exceeded my expectations by a long shot. She’s the best! She gave me undivided attention each and every visit and she took the time to listen to my physical needs as well as my emotional needs after such a trauma. I highly recommend Ginger Morrissey for your orthopedic needs. She will get you back to enjoying life!”
