Myotherapy focuses on the treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions and associated conditions that affect the joints, bones, muscles, spine, and multiple areas of the body where there are musculoskeletal manifestations. This is one of the reasons why myotherapy involves a physical evaluation and an integrated therapeutic approach once a prognosis has been made.
Myotherapy treatments incorporate a comprehensive patient history, tissue observations and movement, postural assessment, and the tactual exploration of the spine, the peripheral joints, the musculature, the connective tissues, and the associated viscera.
Benefits of Myotherapy
According to the Institute of Registered Myotherapists of Australia, evidence has surfaced suggesting that over the last 10 years, treating painful trigger points may help relieve muscle contractions and optimise muscular movement. Here are the other benefits of myotherapy:
- Reduces pain
- Rehabilitation of injury
- Reduces stress and anxiety
