31 May MST – Far Greater Than Just 3 Letters
Quite often, someone who is looking to just “feel better” time and time again skims past the buzzwords, acronyms and over complicated sounding treatments.
They are simply ignored and discounted as irrelevant when all we want is just a massage. However, MST is a crucial part of the healing process that can greatly decrease recovery time when the opportunity presents itself.
Musculoskeletal Therapy (MST) is a manual therapy that focuses on understanding, treating and managing musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
MST can reduce the discomfort from aches & pains & speed up the natural healing process, so you can get back to work or sport & leisure activities sooner.
Our musculoskeletal therapists look at the whole body, treating not only the symptoms but also the cause, resulting in a thorough assessment of your musculoskeletal health.
Our therapists have a thorough understanding and experience in treating a range of musculoskeletal injuries & conditions, including acute sporting injury, surgery rehabilitation, headaches, joint pain, neural pain and back pain.
For the athletes who are reasonably fit or competing at an elite level, an MST practitioner has a wide range of skills to assess, treat & reduce the recurrence of sporting injuries & treatment can enhance performance, decrease the risk of injury & aid in recovery.
Treatments can also be amended to be sport specific.
