Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Dry Needling
The word Myotherapy is derived from the Greek 'Myo', meaning 'muscle'. A Clinical Myotherapist is a multi-skilled physical therapist whose treatment focus is on the preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases of muscle therapy. The goal is to maintain and achieve normal integrity of the body's soft tissue structures (muscles, ligaments and tendons of the body).
When the muscles in our body become knotted, soft tissue and joint mobility may become affected, which can lead to problems in other areas of the body. These may be referred to as trigger points. They can be caused by sports injury, accidents, poor posture, your workplace ergonomics, disease and emotional stress. Left untreated they can cause stiffness or soreness in joints and muscles, severe headaches, back pain or chronic diffuse pain throughout the body.
Myotherapists detect and deactivate these trigger points and apply treatments that reduce and eliminate soreness or nagging referral of pain, and aid in helping you to recover. They may also use dry needling & cupping, soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilisation, thermal therapies such as heat and cold, as well as myofacial stretching.
