What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is a client-centred healthcare profession focusing on the assessment, treatment and management of the whole person, applying a range of modalities and evidence-informed knowledge to support client outcomes.
Myotherapy uses clinical reasoning, manual hands-on therapy, problem solving and planning skills to design and implement treatment and management programs specific to client needs and health outcomes.
Treatment applications may include, however are not limited to, dry needling, exercise and rehabilitation planning, massage therapy and joint mobilisation.
Myotherapy treatments can assist and aid in prevention, assessment, early intervention and treatment of injuries and pain and the ongoing management of chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
What do Myotherapists Treat?
Myotherapists provide evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for a wide range of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions, for example:
- Back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Sports injuries
- Rotator cuff problems
- Occupational injuries
- Achilles tendinopathy and other ankle injuries
- Jaw pain and clicking
- Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain presentations
- Tennis elbow
You don’t need to be in pain to visit a Myotherapist. Once symptoms have settled treatment may focus on restoring optimal activity (rehabilitation), reducing the likelihood of further injury and keeping you moving and performing at your best.
Where do Myotherapists Treat?
Most myotherapists in Australia treat in private practice. Myotherapists may be in stand alone practices or integrated into multidisciplinary settings.
