Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy that involves assessing, treating and rehabilitating musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. A wide range of techniques and tools are used within a Myotherapy appointment.
Having a clinical approach allows a Myotherapist to create a targeted treatment plan to not only help with symptoms but also focus on what is causing the problem, giving clients longer lasting results.
Education on the cause and passing some responsibility back to clients with home exercises, gives them the knowledge on how to manage themselves completely or inbetween treatments depending on the situation. Often there are simple stretching and strengthening exercises that can be done for management and give great results.
Myotherapy is well know for its hands on application. However, there are many other techniques/tools that are used. All aiming to get you to your pain free, physical goals. If there is something that you have or haven’t had success with in the past please tell your practitioner. This allows us to make a better informed decision when creating your treatment plan.
