Myotherapy (Myo meaning muscle) is a manual therapy involving the management of musculoskeletal conditions that impair movement or cause pain. Myotherapists assess and treat soft tissue structures to restore and maintain the integrity of muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. This includes acute injuries such as ankle sprains to chronic conditions like low back pain.
Muscular dysfunction can be caused by trauma, overload or misuse of muscles arising from occupational, sporting and recreational activities.
Common conditions Myotherapists treat
A Myotherapy consultation will typically commence with a thorough history taking followed by various muscle, joint and neurological tests. Combined with manual assessments of muscles and joints, a Myotherapist aims to identify the cause of one’s pain to ensure effective and long lasting results.
Trigger points (or knots) within muscles are a form of muscular dysfunction that can cause deep aching pain, local tenderness or referred pain, which limits strength and flexibility. Utilising palpation skills Myotherapists can identify trigger points and deactivate them using various soft tissue manipulation techniques and dry needling.
Trigger point release techniques are used by Myotherapists to locate and eliminate the cause of many common pains. Dry needling is another commonly used technique involving the use of fine solid needles to release painful trigger points and improve muscle function.
