What is a Neuromuscular Therapist?
An NMT (Neuromuscular Therapist) seeks to eliminate pain, chronic or acute, by addressing five key elements that cause pain: Ischemia, Trigger points, Nerve entrapment/compression, Postural distortions, and Biomechanical dysfunction.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the Prime Bodyworks Therapist will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
What should I wear to my appointment?
If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine, you will be so comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.
How do I make an appointment?
You can get in touch by phone (951) 905-0454 or use the form under the contact page. Alternatively use the quick and easy online booking page, which is the method we prefer.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, Neuromuscular Therapist can assess and treat without referral by a doctor. However most health insurers require a doctors referral before they authorize cover of fees, some only require a phone call. Please check with your insurer first to see if they cover massage therapy.
Treatment duration depends on your assessment, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, and other factors. Re-evaluations will be done to assess your progress to help you achieve your therapy goals.
We see and treat clients for a wide range of conditions and diagnoses. Please visit our Services for an extensive list of conditions and diagnoses we see patients for.
