All movements of the human body are created by the muscles working together. Once one muscle becomes dysfunctional, we start to perceive pain and the muscular chain is compromised.
These symptoms can be a result from direct pain and discomfort of the muscle, to the indirect pain where the Range of Motion is restricted.
Below is an indication of some of the conditions that we treat:
Low back, thoracic stiffness, night pain, general ache across the back. Myotherapy can alleviate these symptoms and get you back on the pain-free path.
Most headaches come from active trigger points around the neck and shoulder area sending pain into the skull. The best way to relieve headache pain is to deactivate the trigger points via Myotherapy treatments instead of masking the cause with pain medication.
Difficulty turning or lifting your head? Myotherapy can help relieve this discomfort and correct underlying postural causes.
Sciatica, difficulty walking or while sitting? Myotherapy can help diagnose the condition and relieve the symptoms.
Mobilisation Techniques – Helps with circulation and mobilisation within a structure EG neck, wrist, and ankle. The therapist may give you mobilisation exercises to do at home.
Practitioner Assisted Stretching – During and after the treatment, stretching of the muscles are crucial in returning the length and removing Trigger Points in dysfunctional muscles. This will increase the Range of Motion in the affected area.
Neural Stretching – The muscular pain can be caused by nerves being impinged, or shortened. Stretching nerves can help eliminate pins and needles, burning and numbness sensations.
Thermal Therapies – Using heat or cold can influence the muscles healing time. This is a big part of at home self management.
