Assessment, Treatment & Rehabilitation of muscular pain and associated conditions
Myotherapy is an evidence-based form of physical ‘hands on’ therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement.
The philosophy of myotherapy is founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.
Techniques can include:
* Myofascial Dry Needling
* Trigger Point Release
* Joint Mobilisation
* Rehabilitation Exercises
* Heat/Cold Therapies
* Soft Tissue Manipulations
* Management Advice
Myotherapists have a deep understanding of the body, anatomy and physiology undertaking an initial three-four years of study plus ongoing professional development courses. The aim of myotherapy is to find the cause of your symptoms rather than to just treating the problem.
Your appointment will begin with the Myotherapist asking you questions about you and the reason you have come in for treatment.
They will then ask you to perform a few personalised tests so they have a thorough understanding of your body and where your pain, stiffness, tension or stress is originating.
Following this assessment your therapist will discuss their treatment plan for you and your treatment will then begin. Myotherapists have a range of hands on techniques they can use.
