After four months of weekly Neuromuscular Therapy treatments in my clinic southwest of Boston, Sally began to respond. Symptoms gradually reduced in all of the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the lumbar spine and the muscles in the buttocks and hips.
As time allowed, other treatments included the muscles of the thigh, and muscles along the entire spine and into the neck and shoulders for local stiffness and headaches. These symptoms as well as jaw pain often accompany imbalances in the pelvis and spine.
For Sally, since she had such an unstable spine (a spondylolesthesis), the symptoms kept returning at varying levels of intensity. She sought regular interventions with an MD certified as a Pain Specialist for more invasive treatments of Trigger Points and nerves. The combination of treatments have been satisfactory for her.
She started her course of Neuromuscular Therapy treatments with weekly 90 minute sessions. After twelve years of treatment, she now comes in twice a month for 60 minutes and rarely needs to see the pain specialist. She is relatively comfortable, has satisfying employment and is able to enjoy life in her community, home and garden.
