Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction and pain thus affecting movement and mobility. Myotherapists utilise a range of treatment techniques to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).
Trigger points within muscles are an example of muscle dysfunction that can cause deep aching pain, local tenderness, referred pain limiting strength and flexibility. Utilising palpation skills Myotherapists can identify trigger points and deactivate them using various soft tissue manipulation techniques.
Muscular dysfunction can be caused by trauma, overload or misuse of muscles arising from occupational, sporting or recreational activities.
What does a Myotherapist do?
Your Myotherapy consultation will typically commence with thorough history taking followed by various testing of the muscles and joints. Combined with manual palpation of muscles and joints, your Myotherapist aims to identify and treat the cause of one’s pain to ensure quick, effective and long lasting results.
Your Myotherapist uses manual techniques to release soft tissue tension such as massage, cupping, mobilisations, stretching, trigger point work, muscle energy technique and dry needling.
