“Myo” (meaning muscle) really sums up what myotherapy is. A myotherapist specialises in the treatment of muscular issues. In a myotherapy session we will assess and treat any pain and dysfunction your are experiencing and give you rehabilitative exercises to maintain the muscle at home.
Myotherapy treatment in Melbourne is focused toward the soft tissues of the body to make sure your body has optimal range of motion and strength. This allows any issues or injuries to recover as quickly as possible and to reduce the chances of the issue or injury reoccurring.
What Happens In A Session? | Myotherapy Melbourne
The myotherapists may do an extensive assessment at the beginning of the session depending on the issue or injury to determine the cause of the symptom. A detailed history will be taking to account for any past issues that may be connected to the current problem. We may also go through some movement testing to assess the bio mechanics of your body and any movement patterns that may be contributing to the issue.
Myotherapy session can include a variety of techniques depending on the issue being treated and the clients comfort levels. Each myotherapist has their own preference for treatment modalities but will always discuss the options and let the client decide. Sessions may include deep tissue massage, cupping, dry needling, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, fascial release, joint mobilisation and corrective exercises.
