Myotherapy

Clinical myotherapy involves the use of advanced hands on manual techniques and a variety of other treatment techniques to reduce muscle tension and trigger points associated with aches and pains, sports and occupational injury, and muscular dysfunction. A wide variety of techniques are used including:

  • Soft tissue therapy/ Trigger point therapy/ Myofascial release
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Myofascial dry needling
  • Thermal therapies
  • TENS machine
  • Postural assessment and correction
  • Corrective exercises (stretches, strength)
  • Diet and nutritional advice.

Myotherapy is applied to restore and maintain muscle integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia) as well as joint and nerve functioning. Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or fascia is described as myofascial. Myofascial pain is usually poorly localised and is often described by the patient as a 'deep ache', 'tightness' or 'tenderness' in an area. It often varies in intensity and radiates to other areas in the body.

Myotherapists are Independent Allied Health Practitioners who treat many of the same conditions regularly seen in community settings by chiropractors and physiotherapists. They offer a clinical approach that involves a thorough whole body patient history, examination, diagnosis and specialised treatment plan depending on the patient and their condition

  • Muscle/ joint/ nerve pain
  • Pregnancy pre/post natal complaints
