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
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome. fibromyalgia
  • Headaches/ migraines

I was fortunate enough to attend a conference this weekend on Lumbar Spinal Stenosis presented by Dr Carlo Ammendolia (Chiropractor & PhD Scientist at the University of Toronto). Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a condition caused by age related changes in the spine that result in pressure on the spinal nerves. As a consequence of this patients with lumbar stenosis have symptoms of pain, burning, numbness, tingling & weakness in their legs, buttocks & low back. The best evidence based way of managing this condition is by improving the patient’s function using chiropractic or other manual therapy, an appropriately prescribed exercise program & CBT or positive reinforcement. With an ageing population Lumbar Spinal Stenosis will continue to become more prevalent in the future and hopefully we will be able to help these people to live better quality lives. Tim, Chiropractor.

Interesting how powerful the language used by a healthcare practitioner is on influencing their patients' mindset and recovery.
