Myotherapy is a form of natural therapy which focuses on the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated pathologies. Myotherapy incorporates a wide range or soft tissue massage including muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
Myotherapists will assess and treat pain and dysfunction in the body based on the effect these tissues have on patients presenting concerns or injuries; and also the effect that these presenting concerns or injuries may have on the soft tissue. Myotherapy treatment is directed towards the tissue structures to ensure that muscle quality is maintained to allow for optimal movement and function while aiding in pain relief and correcting body dysfunction which may be preventing the recovery of an injury.
Myotherapy can be effective at any stage of a concern or injury, be it corrective, rehabilitative or preventative.
