BMT neuroscience applied to the manual therapy

What is BMT?

BMT is a Functional Recovery process that seeks to produce a re-organization of the nervous system in relation to movement.

The aim is to strengthen the neurological pathways that control the different muscles of the body in order to improve the quality of movement by interconnecting, through tissue properties and improved central motor control, the different parts of the human body.

Why do I need to learn BMT?

It is essential that there is a good distribution of the forces exerted on our body throughout the day, through the correct functioning of our muscles and our nervous system.

However, there are various reasons (injuries, stress, wear and tear, etc.) that cause these muscles not to work in harmony and well coordinated, causing motor imbalances that can lead to physical problems and a lack of wellbeing.

The BMT professional will identify the altered proprioceptive communication pathways of the voluntary circuit, which are not working properly, and train them, with the aim of improving the contractile capacity of the musculature it manages, as well as modulating the involuntary and/or reflex response that is responsible for controlling, for example, body posture, and thus improving joint stability and motor control.

What are the benefits?

The BMT Method has numerous benefits both for sports practice and for the improvement of well-being in daily life:

It improves sporting performance.
It improves the capacity of the muscles to exert force.
Increases the range of joint movement.
Increases confidence by improving motor sensations.
Improves the quality of movement.
Decreases excess muscle tension.
Decreases the risk of injury.
Decreases post-injury recovery time.
Decreases joint wear
Decreases joint pain associated with tension and loss of motor control.
Reduces the impact of degenerative processes such as arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Who is it for?

The benefits of this method can be used by a large part of the population, both athletes and non-athletes, since muscular weaknesses and deficiencies in motor control constantly affect many people, and their correction produces an improvement in the quality of life.

The main beneficiaries are people with the following characteristics:

Elderly people.
People who have suffered an injury (bone, muscle, tendon or ligament).
People who have undergone some kind of surgery.
People who want to improve their sporting performance.
People with postural alterations.
People with alterations in their stride.
People with painful or “frozen” shoulders.
People with chronic pain or lack of general functionality.
People with movement deficits (difficulty in moving).
Children with physical disorders that cause
Alterations of the footstep.
People with postural problems.
Anyone who wants to improve the quality of their movement.


What is a BMT session like?

The BMT session consists of training the nervous system on a stretcher, which is manual, non-invasive, painless and does not pose any risk to your health.

The professional will find out, through a series of tests, which neurokinetic sequences are not working in an optimal way.

Once these alterations have been detected, the specialist in BMT  proceed, by applying a series of “priming” tools, to increase corticospinal excitability in order to improve voluntary motor response.

The final objective of the session will be to achieve the RE-ORGANISATION of the motor control of our Central Nervous System in relation to MOVEMENT.
