What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a trusted healthcare profession that takes a whole-of-care approach to effectively assess, treat and manage pain, injuries and dysfunction. Myotherapists have a deep understanding of the body, anatomy and physiology. The aim of Myotherapy is to find the cause of your symptoms,  rather than to just treating the problem.

What To Expect:

On your first visit to the Myotherapist they will go through a thorough case history and ask you questions about your current symptoms or injury, medical history, any medications you are taking or other factors related to your health and wellbeing that may be related to your concerns. This allows your Myotherapist to get a full picture of what may be causing your symptoms and other factors that may be influencing them.

Once your Myotherapist has finished going through your medical history, they will go through a range of tests to help determine how to best treat and manage your condition. This may include orthopaedic testing, neurological testing, movement testing or postural assessments. To ensure that the examination being performed can be achieved efficiently it is asked that you wear comfortable and appropriate clothing that will not restrict your movement.

Following this assessment your Myotherapist will discuss their treatment plan for you and your treatment will then begin. In conjunction with hands-on treatment your Myotherapist may also prescribe exercises to do at home or work, ergonomic advice and lifestyle advice to compliment your in-person treatment.
