Myotherapy is a specialist form of soft tissue therapy, which focuses on the assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. It is used in the preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases of therapy to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structure (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the body. Dysfunction and injury can be caused by occupational, postural and recreational stresses, faulty biomechanics, muscular imbalances, traumatic or overuse injury, musculoskeletal illness or disease. Through the use of various treatment techniques such as muscle manipulation, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, dry needle therapy and stretching, Myotherapy will help to improve muscular strength, increase joint mobility and range of motion and decrease pain. The prescription of corrective exercise, stretching and relevant advice will be given to help manage any pain, injury or dysfunction.
