What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is a combination of specific massage and other techniques, used to treat all types of physical pain, injuries and dysfunction. Myotherapy uses Orthopaedic and Neurological testing to diagnose the problem, treatment then involves Massage, MET stretching, Spinal mobilisation, Cupping, Dry needling and Corrective exercises.
While Myotherapy is used for the treatment of pain or injuries, it is also a very effective way to maintain a healthy body and prevent injuries from occurring.
Myotherapists treat common injuries including lower back pain, disk bulges, muscle strains (tears), ligament sprains, headaches, common overuse injuries such as tennis elbow, patella femoral syndrome (runners knee), ITB syndrome, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and many other joint and muscles injuries.
What can I expect from treatment?
A treatment takes around 45 minutes and consists of a short history taking and assessment, hands on treatment involving the previously mentioned techniques and a brief reassessment following the treatment. Treatment techniques are always discussed with the patient, and can be adjusted to suit the needs of the patients.
