What neuromuscular massage is based?

Therapy: neuromuscular, its target : the trigger point pain, action : the release of said interfering field represented as irritative or fibrous of muscle lumpiness and fascia coating, which as a rule does not respond to drugs, his condition relapsing can occur by stress, overuse and exhaustion of the muscles, these episodes are compounded by neuralgic and spasmodic involvement in the whole.
