Myotherapy is all about identifying and addressing the underlying causes of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as treating symptoms.
Techniques used in Myotherapy are implemented with a long term pain relief solution in mind.
Myotherapy treatment is designed for people who have;
- acute or chronic pain such as back pain and headaches
- ligament and tendon damage
- soft tissue conditions and muscular pain – postural, muscular or injury related
- loss of joint range of movement
You should see a Myotherapist when your pain lasts longer than a few days or when you’re suffering from restricted movement.
Many people also seek Myotherapy treatment in the rehabilitative phase of care to help strengthen the affected areas.You can expect a visit with a Myotherapist there is a greater focus on assessing the underlying causes of your condition.
A Myotherapy consultation will typically commence with thorough history taking followed by various muscle, joint and neurological testing.
Your practitioner will work with you to develop a holistic plan of management, which may include exercise, diet/nutritional measures, and postural awareness, as well as hands-on techniques including deep tissue massage, muscle stretching, cupping and dry needling.
The goal is to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).
