What is Myotherapy?

 

Clinical Myotherapy is a branch of manual medicine that focuses on the treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain including myofascial pain (trauma or muscle contracture), neuropathic pain (nervous system) and articular pain (joints).

 

Clinical myotherapists combine fundamental health science knowledge with manual therapy, pain management, and exercise therapy to help people to recover from pain and injury, improving their physical function and quality of life.

 

Myotherapy treatment will consist of a variety of modalities, including; soft/deep tissue massage, dry needling, electrotherapy, cupping, sports strapping/taping, stretching, exercise prescription and joint mobilisation.
