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

Body to Balance now provides a number of Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) services which include:
• Safe Manual Handling Training
• Workplace Hazard, Risk & Control Assessments
• Ergonomic Workstation Assessments
• Health Screening & Health Monitoring of Employees
• Workplace Treatment & Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation
• Injury Management & Return to Work Programs
• Pre-Employment Medical Examinations (through OH&Solutions)

In Victoria the Occupational Health & Safety Act 2004 and the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation & Compensation Act 2013 state an employer has a responsibility to provide a safe working environment and when a worker becomes injured to manage this injury responsibly. Despite being a legal requirement, there is extensive research to indicate that OHS programs result in a healthy workforce that results in a vast number of benefits such as increased productivity, reduced work-related injuries and illnesses, staff loyalty and retention, a positive social climate and is usually more cost effective. Likewise, when OHS controls fail resulting in a work-related injury or illness early workplace identification, treatment and management including assisting a timely and safe return to work plan is effective in reducing the economic costs of the work-related injury or illness to the employer (Ellis, 2001; Waddell 2006; WorkSafe Victoria, 2013; Safework Australia, 2019; Safework Australia, 2020).
