Myotherapy is a branch of manual therapy that helps patients to manage and relieve pain and decrease movement restriction, whilst addressing contributing factors that led to the development of the complaint.
Myotherapy incorporates extensive physical evaluation and an integrated approach to treat affected muscles, joints, connective tissue, and nerves. It uses standard methods of assessment, such as orthopaedic, neurological and functional testing to determine the cause of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
Myotherapy treatment involves manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue, massage, joint mobilisation, trigger point therapy, dry needling, myofascial release, cupping, thermal therapy, taping, postural assessment, corrective and rehabilitative exercise.
