Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal dysfuction that can result from improper posture, trauma, overuse or incorrect biomechanics. Pain complaints can arise from different structures of the body such as muscle, tendons, ligaments or fascia.
Using palpation skills a myotherapist can assist to treat and prevent soft tissue pain which can cause a deep aching sensation, reduced mobility and strength, stiffness or numbness in the body.
Myotherapists treat the primary cause of the problem, as well as the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. Examples include the following:
Myotherapy is a very “hands on” therapy and employ various techniques in the management of your condition. Following the initial examination the therapist will outline a health plan and depending on your injury will utilise a number of modalities such as: trigger point therapy, dry needling, deep tissue massage, hot and cold therapies, passive/active muscle stretching, electro-mechanical stimulation and corrective or rehabilitative exercises.
