Myotherapy Brisbane- What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy sometimes known as Musculoskeletal Therapy is a branch of functional medicine that uses the latest CLINICALLY PROVEN techniques to assess and treat the cause of pain – rather than endlessly treating the symptoms.

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 ).

Myotherapy can aid in injury recovery, return to sport, rsi, tendinopathies, chronic pain states, sciatica, office related neck, shoulder and arm pain, disc pain, knee pain and much more.
