What Is Myotherapy
Myotherapy is a hands-on therapy which assesses, treatsand rehabilitated musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. It is intended to restore soft tissue structures such as muscles and fascia to their normal states.
Why It Works
Myotherapy incorporates trigger-point therapy and a wide range of soft tissue massage and manipulation, including muscle energy techniques, dry needling, and joint mobilisation. These combined techniques lead to tissue change at a deep physiological level and results in improved mobility and function and decreased pain. Myotherapists will also give you advice on stretching, specific exercises, self-massage techniques and foam rolling.
There is no specific time to seek treatment as your problem will be affected by many factors such as mechanism of injury, occupation, level of exercise and previous injuries. However, early intervention and management of the problem usually leads to the best results. A regular myotherapy treatment specific to your needs is beneficial to keep your muscles at their best and as a preventative for further injuries. Ideally, a treatment every 1–4 weeks will be highly beneficial in helping to maintain flexibility and movement, reduce pain and reduce the impact of injury to your activities of daily living.
