What is Neuromuscular Stabilization?
Neuromuscular Stabilization is a rehabilitative approach to activate the integrated stabilizing system of the spine.
It involves a strategy of assessment, treatment, exercises and a lifetime change of bad habitual movement patterns.
These bad movement patterns can cause a wide range of problems which in the end, cause you pain somewhere.
The nervous system establishes programs that control human locomotion, which is comprised of posture and movement.
This ‘motor control’ is largely established during the first critical years of life.
The neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control are assessed for a rehabilitative approach to activate the integrated stabilizing system and restore dysfunction of the locomotor system and associated syndromes.
Activation of the stabilizing muscles during any movement is automatic or subconscious and act as a functional unit.
Specific functional exercises are given to improve spinal stability and teach the brain to maintain central control and stability.
Neuromuscular Stabilization methods are beneficial for most people from infants, athletes to geriatric.
