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
  • Movement Assessment Technology (MAT)
  • 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
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome. fibromyalgia
  • Headaches/ migraines
  • Associated joint and vertebral dysfunction and pain.

As of this week we continue to offer exercise physiology, dietetics, psychology, podiatry and chiropractic as essential health services. Patients coming in have definitely appreciated our services and this reinforces the important role we have to play in the health system. We have been operating in the safest and responsible way which those coming in will attest to. However, we understand its not possible for everyone to make it into the clinic so last week we launched Telehealth services. A telehealth consultation can include many of the components of a normal consultation including a history, diagnosis and management plan including counselling, reassurance, exercise, nutritional, lifestyle, occupational & ergonomic advice. This really encourages you as the patient to take an onus in self-managing your condition. Our telehealth services are provided by our software provider, Cliniko, in a private, secure and ethical way. You can book a clinical or telehealth consultation at bodytobalance.com.au or call 82881937. After booking you will receive an email confirmation with further instructions. Telehealth is covered by WorkSafe, Medicare CDMP & MHP, NDIS, and is currently being negotiated with most private health insurance funds.

For Carson’s patients he can still be contacted at carsonmacartney@gmail.com or via Telehealth appointments booked at bodytobalance.com.au or calling 82881937. Our 5 other allied health practitioners are currently still practicing and following the advice of the government and their respective associations.

The Federal Health Minister has confirmed that ALL allied health businesses nationally can continue working and are encouraged to do so. The Minister has also indicated that the Australian Government Department of Health is now developing full allied health telehealth options, along with other health and medical services, within the week. We will continue to update you with developments through the week. Keep well!
