Myotherapy sometimes known as Musculoskeletal Therapy is a branch of functional medicine that specialises in the empowerment of clients to overcome physical pain and dysfunction. Myotherapy solutions utilise evidence based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.
Myotherapy treatments involve a detailed interview and assessment of soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons and ligaments), joint mobility/function, nerve pathways, physical capacity and biomechanics (physical strengths and limitations ).
Initial treatments will focus on manual therapy and pain relief while incorporating exercise to improve function, reduce pain and empower clients to overcome obstacles without dependence.
Techniques used by a myotherapist include prescriptive exercise, joint mobilisations, myofascial release, triggerpoint therapy and massage, dry needling, electro dry needling, cupping, kinesio and rock taping, joint traction and manual therapy techniques. A myotherapist is a HIGHLY skilled clinician who is able to quickly identify the underlying cause of physical dysfunction and able to rehabilitate musculoskeletal injuries to a high level of function.
Myotherapy uses the latest CLINICALLY PROVEN techniques to assess and treat the cause of pain – rather than endlessly treating the symptoms.
Myotherapy can aid in injury recovery and prevention, chronic pain states, postural dysfunction, event preparation (marathons, triathlons, overseas treks etc), return to sport, headaches, office related arm pain, neck and shoulder pain, hip dysfunction and retraining, plantar fasciopathy management - and a host of other conditions.
An initial consultation is used to establish your health history, find out what you want to improve and what you are missing out on because of pain or dysfunction.
We perform a comprehensive initial assessment to fully understand the muscular, joint and nerve functions in your body. From this we can discover the underlying cause of any problems - develop a plan of action and perform treatments. Ultimately we want to EMPOWER you to make yourself better!
