MYOTHERAPY

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement. Soft tissue includes your muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.  The function of these tissues is assessed to determine the role they play in your presenting condition or injury. 

Treatment focuses on the soft tissue to achieve optimal muscle movement and strength, while reducing pain and restrictions. Treatment may be applied at any stage of a condition from initial concern, rehabilitation and preventative care.

How Does Myotherapy Help?

As every person and condition differs, Myotherapists have a number of techniques available to achieve pain relief and better movement, such as:

Trigger Point Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage

Myofascial Release

Dry Needling

Cupping

MET Stretching

Corrective Exercise

But before treatment, a thorough assessment is performed. Assessments generally look at posture, movement and muscle strength. This helps figure out what the problem is, what caused it, and which specific areas need to be treated.

Sports Injuries
