What can I expect during a myotherapy session?
One of our specialist myotherapists will begin the session by evaluating your medical history and presenting conditions. You may be asked to bring any scans (MRI, X-RAY, CT) and results to the consultation.
A sequence of postural, muscular and neurological assessments will take place. This initial examination is important for our myotherapist to understand your discomfort levels as well as track your improvement over treatments.
Once the assessment is complete, your myotherapist will discuss a specialised treatment plan. This may include some of the following techniques depending on your needs.
- remedial massage
- myofascial dry needling
- muscle stretching
- myofascial release and electrical stimulation
A form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement, Myotherapy is a specialised type of remedial massage focused on decreasing muscular pain.
Myotherapy can help with prevention, assessment, early intervention and treatment of injuries and pain and the ongoing management of chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
Treatment may focus on restoring optimal activity, reducing the likelihood of further injury and keeping you moving and performing at your best. The treatment you receive from a myotherapist will depend on your condition.
Myotherapists use a trigger-point release method and a variety of other techniques to relieve muscle and myofascial pain. Trigger-points are sensitive areas of tight muscle fibres, typically formed by overuse. Sometimes an injury or dysfunction of a muscle can lead to referred pain in a nearby area.
