What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is a therapeutic, deep tissue therapy which is used to holistically treat specific soft-tissue dysfunction and alleviate pain by treating and rehabilitating musculoskeletal pain and associated pathologies.
Myotherapy is one of the safest and effective forms of therapy aimed directly at treating soft tissue dysfunction and pain. It generally involves addressing some of the deeper muscles of the patient’s body with the help of various techniques such as: deep tissue, dry needling, cupping, and taping.
Myotherapy often proves to be highly effective as it improves the functions of joints and muscles, accelerate the healing process, improve metabolism and promote blood circulation, along with reducing tension and stress of the muscles. It thus helps improve general health including mood and inner wellbeing.
In conjunction with other allied health practices, Myotherapists usually work on a wide range of evidence based treatment process with different approaches and skills such as manual therapy.
Myotherapy treatment can effectively aid in assessment, prevention, early intervention and early recovery from muscle injuries and pain by the ongoing management of chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
Practitioners first assess the needs on an individual basis before devising a treatment plan. Some of the common treatments are for trigger point therapy, dry needling, cupping, joint mobilisation, stretching, exercise, rehabilitation programs, and pain management.
