Myotherapy

Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy that involves assessing, treating and rehabilitating musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

Myotherapy is well-known for its hands-on application and broad range of techniques and tools, all of which are centred upon allowing you to live an active, pain-free life. Myotherapists’ skills in palpation (massage) and dry needling are well-regarded, and the incorporation of both hands-on and movement-based treatment is commonplace. The Myotherapy profession is a constantly evolving landscape with new techniques and research regularly being made available to practitioners.

Treating in a clinical setting allows a Myotherapist to create a targeted treatment plan. This both assists with the management of symptoms and allows the practitioner to focus on the cause of your pain and discomfort, offering longer-lasting results.

Your Myotherapist will help you develop a tailored, manageable plan for total care and treatment including both your therapy sessions and a workable plan for at-home treatment. We’re proud that Myotherapy is a modality that offers a broad range of applications and outcomes; it is, therefore, a great method of treatment for those clients who require a more flexible treatment plan incorporating simple stretching and strengthening exercises that, when engaged with, give outstanding results.

Some of the tools and techniques that may be used can include, but aren’t limited to:

– Palpation to identify structures
