Musculoskeletal Therapy (MST), also sometimes called Myotherapy is a comprehensive detailed analysis of your physical state. MST treatments involve a thorough assessment of soft tissue, joint mobility, nerve pathways, dermatome, myotomes and biomechanics. There is also a strong exercise prescription element to complement the treatment plan.
Techniques used in an MST Treatment may include mobilisations (not manipulations), myofascial release, dry needling, electro dry needling, cupping, supportive and rock taping, trigger points, and manual therapy techniques. The therapist is highly trained and able to identify anything from muscle imbalances, nerve pathway impingement, gait issues, joint capsule problems as well as muscle dysfunction.
MST can be used on a wide range of conditions from generalised hip, shoulder & neck pain, headaches and migraines, postural improvement, sports performance enhancement, disc injury rehabilitation, old persistent injuries, new injury recovery.
