The feeling of being free is something we all strive for. Sometimes though, we can become weighed down by health problems or pains that just won’t go away. Myotherapy is an incredible method of therapy that can help many people.
Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascial dysfunction. Myotherapy includes multiple methods combined together to ensure your body receives the best treatment.
What does Myotherapy involve?
Your first Myotherapy session will most likely start off with an assessment. Your Myotherapist will ask you questions about any symptoms you may be facing or any conditions you may suffer from now or in the past. The Myotherapist will examine and manipulate the affected joints and associated muscles, and test your reflexes. This initial examination is thorough and helps the myotherapist to find out if the symptoms are myofascial.
Your treatment will then depend on your assessment and may include a wide range of methods such as
- Massage, including sports and remedial techniques
- Gently moving the patient’s affected body part through its range of motion (passive stretching)
- Trigger point therapy
- Myofascial dry needling.
