What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is a specialist form of soft tissue therapy, which focuses on the assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, and general discomfort.
There are many causes of dysfunction and injury, including occupational, postural and recreational stresses, faulty biomechanics, muscular imbalances, trauma or overuse, and musculoskeletal illness or disease, all of which Myotherapy can assist.
Used in the preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases, Myotherapy will restore and maintain the normal integrity of the bodies’ soft tissue structures – muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia - and have you feeling at your best again.
Muscle Manipulation & Massage
Muscle manipulation is the realignment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and fibrous tissues in the body. This process encourages the body to heal the affected areas and helps to ensure a faster and full recovery.
Myofascial Release & Stretching
Myofascial release is a form of stretching which focuses on the soft tissue structures throughout the body. The therapy relaxes contracted muscles, improves blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates stretch reflex in muscles. The result is the feeling of increased muscle control, flexibility and range of motion.
Dry needling helps to relieve muscular pain, release tight muscles, as well as promote blood flow to affected muscles. The therapy is most commonly used to release or deactivate muscle trigger points that contribute to the palpable source of pain.
Corrective exercises are prescribed for the rehabilitation and strengthening of a muscle or group of muscles following an injury or post-operative surgery. Specific corrective exercise programs can assist in the prevention of injuries, correction of posture and the repair of muscle imbalances.
