Neuromuscular reeducation is the use of stretching, strengthening, and specialized exercises to relieve chronic pain by creating new ways of resting, holding and moving the human body. This creates new pathways for the muscles and joints thereby increasing mobility and promoting pain free, healthy tissues.

Finally, specialized exercises are assigned to actually correct improper joint movements and restore mobility.top
