Myotherapy involves the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions. Myotherapy treatments aid with the assessment, early intervention, prevention and treatment of injuries. They also play a crucial role in the ongoing management of chronic musculoskeletal conditions that could have a detrimental impact on one’s quality of life.

These musculoskeletal conditions may cause: 

  • Muscular dysfunction 
  • Pain 
  • Decrease in flexibility and/or movement
Myotherapy can be used for a number of injuries and conditions including:
  • Traumatic Injuries 
  • Overuse Injury 
  • Chronic Neuromuscular and/or Muscular Illness or Disease
 Some of these injuries and conditions can occur as a result of:
  • Incorrect posture 
  • Poor biomechanics
  • Muscular imbalances 
  • Strains 
  • Sprains
  • Occupational Workload 
  • Incorrect Ergonomics 
  • Emotional Stress

Why is Myotherapy essential for your Health and well-being?

In line with other allied health practices, Myotherapists use a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches to assist with muscular pain and dysfunction which include:

  • Deep tissue massage 
  • Dry needling 
  • Trigger point therapy 
  • Myofascial release

 

How often should you get Myotherapy treatment?

A treatment plan will address how often you will need to come into the clinic and a timeframe of when your condition is expected to get better.

For Myotherapy treatments to have a long lasting effect, following your treatment plan consistently is very important. Getting a treatment once a year or only when you are in excruciating pain is not ideal as one or few treatments cannot undo prolonged muscle tension and pain. 

Will I need a follow up?  

Yes, you will need a follow up appointment to ensure the treatment is having the desired effect on your body and aiding in the recovery process. During your follow up appointment we will discuss the process of your treatment plan moving forward. We will also inform you of any potential investigation that you may require.
