WHAT DOES A MYOTHERAPIST DO?
A Myotherapy consultation will typically commence with thorough history taking followed
by the necessary muscle, joint and neurological testing for your condition. Combined with manual palpation of muscles and joints, a Myotherapist aims to identify the cause of your complaint, treat the pain, and minimise the likelihood of the injury reoccurring by strengthening and stabilising the area.
MYOTHERAPISTS TREAT THE CAUSE AS WELL AS THE SYMPTOMS OF A WIDE RANGE OF CONDITIONS. THIS CAN INCLUDE:
WHAT TREATMENT TECHNIQUES DOES A MYOTHERAPIST USE?
Myotherapists use various soft tissue massage and manipulation techniques together with
dry needling, cupping, stretching and corrective exercises. All modalities are used with the intention to restore and maintain the normal integrity of soft tissue structures.
WHEN SHOULD I SEE A MYOTHERAPIST?
Myotherapy can be used to treat the above conditions but also for prevention of injuries and maintenance of an improved quality of life. You should see a Myotherapist when your pain is persistent or when you are suffering from reduced range of movement.
