Myotherapy

Treatment can enhance performance, decrease the risk of injury, reduce pain and discomfort & aid in recovery.

What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy which focuses on the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascia dysfunction.  Myotherapy draws on a combination of the principles of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and pathology to provide a unique treatment to help the body recover from musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders. Myotherapy expands beyond remedial massage to treat more complex cases. As such, Myotherapists require further qualification to be able to use a wider range and variety of techniques for treatment.
