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
