The twinge you felt at the end of your workout last month did not “just go away”. In fact, there’s no pain relief in sight. You’ve had to cut way back at the gym. You’ve changed your form, “getting away” from sore muscles. And sure enough, now those new overused areas are talking to you. The dominoes are falling. You just want to get out of pain and back to your healthy lifestyle, but you are not even sure what exactly is wrong with your body, or where to go for help.
Getting in to see an orthopedist or neurologist can take weeks. Physical Therapy might be an option, but you need to get a prescription from your doctor, which can take a while. Even then, will insurance cover it?
There’s an alternative that many people are completely unaware of: Massage! Specifically, it’s a technique called Precision Neuromuscular Therapy.
Precision Neuromuscular Therapy (PNMT) is a unique approach to soft tissue pain relief. What sets it apart from every other treatment approach is its thorough evaluation and targeted treatment. A very specific evaluation uncovers the exact cause of each client’s individual pain. For example, of the 10+ reasons that cause pain at the knee, we can identify which of those reasons is your reason. We can isolate which muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve or connective tissue is at play. Then we provide very precise, hands-on treatment to that exact tissue.
The 2 components of actually identifying the problem and applying skilled work form a powerful combination that produces stellar results! What’s more, because the treatment is tailored to the exact problem, this work can have you back in the game much faster!
Precision Massage offers this skilled PNMT treatment in the St. Louis area. All of our licensed massage therapists are certified in PNMT, and all also come from medical backgrounds before massage. Their level of skill and knowledge is unmatched. When receiving PNMT for the first time, it is not unusual for a patient to say, “that’s my exact pain”, or, “why hasn’t any one else ever been able to figure this out?” We get our clients back to their best form, and back on track with their sport or workouts fast.
Take the case of “Sybil”, who was side-lined from running after a speed workout, and came to us after prior hamstring treatment had failed. Our Precision Massage therapist took a closer look at her posture and running form and found the actual culprits to be muscles that rotate the hip and pelvis. “Sybil” went from being certain she’d have to bow out of her half-marathon to rocking her race in a matter of 1 month!
