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 (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).
Trigger points within muscles are an example of muscle dysfunction that can cause deep aching pain, local tenderness and referred pain which can limit your strength and flexibility. Utilising palpation skills, Myotherapists can identify trigger points and deactivate them using various soft tissue manipulation techniques.
Myotherapists treat the cause as well as the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. Some examples of conditions commonly treated by Myotherapists are:
- Neck & backpain
- Chronic Overuse (RSI)
- Tennis/Golfers elbow
- Joint pain
- Numbness and tingling
- General tightness
- Carpal Tunnel
- Knee, hip & ankle pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Elbow & wrist pain
As well as helping episodes of pain, Myotherapy can be a proactive way of maintaining the body’s harmony and preventing injuries from occurring.
