What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy that works to treat musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders. That’s just a wordy way of saying it’s another great method for relieving pain, rehabilitating injuries and improving quality of life and vitality for YOU.
Myotherapy evolved as an extension of Remedial Massage to treat complex conditions that required more than massage alone. You can think of it as a mix of Remedial Massage and Physiotherapy – in your session your therapist might use massage, dry needling, hot stones, stretching, muscle manipulation, a TENS machine, recommended home exercises and more to treat the cause of the issue.
What Can Myotherapy Treat?
Myotherapy is an excellent treatment for lower back pain, myofascial pain, joint problems, jaw and TMJ issues, tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, headaches and general muscle pains and sprains.
Your Myotherapist will perform a thorough assessment of your presenting problem at our clinic in Carlton North, which could involve:
- Checking your range of motion
- Postural assessment
- Physical examination
After your assessment, your Myotherapist will begin treating your problem – they may be able to sort it out in one session, or develop a treatment plan for more complex cases.
The Myotherapist’s Toolbox
Our Myotherapists employ a range of holistic techniques to get you and your body in optimal health. Your Myotherapy session could include:
Soft Tissue Techniques
Such as massage, myofascial release or muscle manipulation.
Trigger Point Therapy
Where direct pressure is applied to specific points of the body to release tension and pain.
Where fine, single-use needles are inserted into restricted, injured or immobile muscle tissue.
Where a light electrical current is applied to needles in order to stimulate tense or frozen muscles, release pain and ease tension.
Where specialised back-and-forth stretching is used to improve range of motion and address joint pain.
Myofascial Cupping Therapy
Using decompressed cups to lift up the underlying tissue, increase blood circulation and range of motion.
