NeuroMuscular Taping From Theory to Practice

NeuroMuscular Taping Editorial

Several textbooks have been written on the applications of NeuroMuscular Taping and its particular methodology and are used to provide a series of reference points and guidance in support of vocational professional training. The texts are written as an educational support and are not intended to be replaced by training provided in special NMT training courses. Reducing the entire training procedure to read-only literature is reductive and will not guarantee any learning process. Consequently NMT methodology and therapeutic KNOW HOW is passed on in face to face teaching modules to ensure correct treatment manual skills and creating good treatment practice.

NMT Professional training is a purely hands on activity and is not independent from face to face didactic learning experiences. The NMT Institute can only guarantee good practice by attending our training courses.

NeuroMuscular Taping From Theory to Practice

The history of bandages with therapeutic purposes dates back to the times of the Greeks and Romans with the well-known song of the Iliad where Achilles bandages the arm and the wounds of Patroclus. It is defined as bandaging or bandaging an application of bends or bands over a traumatized area to limit the damage and encourage eventual healing.

In the last thirty years, various techniques of elastic and stretchy bandage have been developed in different parts of the world, but the origin of these methods always remains the compression of the various parts of the body. The new techniques of taping date back to the Seventies, i.e. the application of a elastic adhesive tape with different voltage levels that always provided a compressive stimulus capable of providing external assistance to the muscles and found Application especially in sports environment.

From the 2003 David Blow, Australian and acupuncture specialist, develops the concept of decompression and compression technique of neuromuscular taping, a fundamental and particular characteristic that differentiates it from other types of taping and bandages. A new method of application and a different clinical reasoning are the basis of this innovative rehabilitation technique.

The methodology of Neuromuscular Taping (NMTConcept) is a biomechanical therapy that uses decompression and compression stimuli to obtain beneficial effects on musculoskeletal, vascular, lymphatic and neurological systems, with clinical and Rehabilitation. With the application of tapes are formed skin replication during body movement facilitating lymphatic drainage, promote blood vascularity, reduce pain, improve the Range of Muscoloarticolare movement and posture.

Focusing his attention on several clinical pictures (from acute, postacute and functional) during the different stages of rehabilitation, David Blow has created a simple and highly functional methodology for optimizing results during Treatments with the following objectives: normalize the Range of movement, reduce pain, improve the autonomy of the subject and offer a biomechanical treatment to reduce inflammation.

NMTConcept offers practitioners of medicine and rehabilitation a more resource to improve the response of the subject, reducing the time of rehabilitation and improving the quality of life of the subject in recovery. The neuromuscular Taping is a non-invasive and non-pharmacological technique, which, through the application of an adhesive tape and elastic with particular characteristics Meccanoelastiche offers a mechanical stimulation able to create space in the tissues; Promote cellular metabolism, activate the natural healing capacity of the body and normalize the neuromuscular proprioception.
For this reason, in recent years, neuromuscular Taping has achieved important results in postsurgical orthopedic rehabilitation and neurological rehabilitation of cerebral stroke, spinal trauma and other degenerative neurological pathologies.

The high level of results means that neuromuscular Taping is at the forefront of new therapeutic techniques.
