Physical Therapy

Nervous About Flexibility?

Do you stretch frequently and still seem to feel tight?  Are you concerned you can’t touch your toes or can’t get your pecs to loosen up? Sure your muscles may be tight, but your nerves can also be tight, which can limit your range of motion and flexibility. Nerve tension can mimic muscle tension, but is treated a bit differently. We stretch muscles when they’re tight, but when there’s nerve involvement, we incorporate “neurodynamics” into a treatment program. Neurodynamics is “the study of the mechanics and physiology of the nervous system”.  Check out our latest blog to get a little better insight as to what nerve tension is and what are its causes!
