- ABOUT US
We are often asked about the difference between Myotherapy and Remedial Massage.
Myotherapists study the Remedial Diploma before going to the next level of the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy which is an extra year qualification.
Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy, used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement. It is evidence based assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and management of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.
Myotherapists utilise a wide range of treatment techniques including remedial massage, manual trigger point therapy, dry needling, joint mobilizations, cupping, hot and cold therapies, passive and active stretching, TENS and electro-therapeutic modalities and corrective and rehabilitative exercises to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).
Myotherapists can treat a wide range of conditions, examples include : Neck and back pain, Headaches and migraines, TMJ problems, Chronic overuse and RSI injuries, sciatica, tennis and golfers elbow, numbness and tingling, carpal tunnel, cramps, sprains and muscle strains to name a few.
Myotherapy involves an extensive physical evaluation and an integrated therapeutic approach in the treatment of affected muscles, joints and nerves. The aim of Myotherapy treatment is to improve your muscular strength, flexibility and decrease your pain.
