Clinical Myotherapy

Holistic approach to improving your health & wellbeing

Clinical Myotherapy can help reduce muscle tension, manage stress, improve sleep, increase activity performance through joint strengthening, flexibility & mobility, reduce the risk of injuries and help manage the symptoms associated with soft tissue pain. Symptoms of soft tissue pain can include:

– deep and constant aching
– muscle tightness
– sore spots in the muscle (myofascial trigger points)
– reduced joint mobility
– stiff joints
– numbness
– recurrent tingling, prickling or ‘pins and needles’ sensation
– unexplained tiredness

Clinical Myotherapy

Common conditions treated include:

– overuse injury such as tennis elbow or shin splints
– common sports injuries (wrist & ankle strains)
– tension headaches
– pain caused by poor posture (back & neck pain)
– some types of chronic back pain
– some types of joint pain, such as shoulder impingement syndrome
– joint dysfunctions (shoulder, hip & knee pain)
– nerve impingment syndromes (sciatica)
– chronic pain conditions (fibromyalgia)
– bio-mechanical dysfunctions (runners knee, shin splints & plantar fasciitis)

A point of difference with Clinical Myotherapy is that it uses a Biopsychosocial approach to assessment and treatment. This is a holistic approach that examines you as a whole rather than just a single condition. Health and optimum function is achieved when biological, psychological and social factors area addressed. This approach allows for tailored treatments of the individual with more effective and longer lasting treatment outcomes.
