Reduce pain, restore movement and optimize funtion
What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is an evidence based new form of manual therapy, that includes the treatment and rehabilitation of acute or chronic muscle and joint pain. Myotherapy plays a unique role in helping the body recover from muscle and joint related pain and dysfunction. This form of physical therapy began as an extension of Remedial Massage and has emerged to treat more complex conditions than Remedial Therapy can address alone. Myotherapy expands beyond massage, using a wide range of treatments to aid muscle and joint recovery. It incorporates a deeper understanding of the human body, anatomy and physiology into its massage techniques, along with other manual therapy interventions.
At your first appointment with our Myotherapist, they will ask some questions about your symptoms and medical history, including prior illness and surgery. This information is used to help pinpoint the cause of your symptoms and map out the best treatment techniques needed to .

QUALIFIED IN A WIDE RANGE OF
We have the expertise to assess, control and treat myofascial pain and dysfunction.
This technique is commonly used to restore small, involuntary movements that assist joints to perform at their best. It takes joint to the end of their range using both mulligans and maitlands mobilisation techniques to treat joint restriction and pain.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue therapy is theraputic treatment on the body's soft tissue, and reduces tensile and compressive stress on your body. A variety of massage techniques are used to treat muscular pains and myofascial restrictions throughout the tissues.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Points or muscle “knots” are sore spots in soft tissue that cause deep aching. This form of therapy where an application of pressure is applied to trigger points whilst stretching or contracting the muscle to relieve the densification and promote healing.
Exercise and movement is an important part of any recovery process, so it makes sense to incorporate it in any treatment plan. Exercise rehab uses the prescription of therapeutic exercise and stretches to manage and improve pain, function and build the body's strength.
This is an ancient form of therapy where an application of cups are placed over muscle using a vacuum type effect that lifts the underlying affected tissues to promote blood and lymph flow. It also encourages muscular release to help healing, pain reduction and increase range of motion.
Electro dry needling uses the same needles hooked up to an electro-stimulation machine. The frequency and intensity can vary to treat pain from a musculoskeletal origin including tendinopathies and joint pathologies, or to help assist with treatment of neuropathy, radiculopathy and post-operative pain.,
Dry needling is a modern technique designed to ease muscular pain, and encourage blood flow to affected areas. Filiform needles are inserted into muscles and areas of densification called “trigger points” to treat muscular tightness and pain.
MET / PNF
Muscle energy technique and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation are both that use a contract/relax stretching therapy on the affected muscle group. It aims to seek improvement in muscular performance using both active and passive range of motion.
