MYOTHERAPY

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 including trigger point therapy, dry needling, deep tissue massage, hot and cold therapies, cupping, passive/active muscle stretching, and corrective or rehabilitative exercises.


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.
