Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction and pain which can affect movement and mobility.
Most people seek Myotherapy treatment when suffering from aches and pains, though many receive treatment to prevent injury.
You should see a Myotherapist when your pain lasts longer than a few days or when you’re suffering from restricted movement. Many people also seek Myotherapy treatment in the rehabilitative phase of care to help strengthen the affected areas.
Myotherapy techniques are beneficial for everyone – whether an injury is reoccurring or has occurred because the body is not trained to sustain what it experiences. In fact, there are physiological benefits associated with regular treatments – did you know that you could increase your fitness level and recover from injuries faster? Myotherapy assists in the restoration and maintenance of the soft tissue structures of the body.
Myotherapy Plus, located in East Kew out of Kew Osteo, neighbouring Balwyn, Balwyn North, Camberwell, Hawthorn and close proximity to Doncaster, Lower Templestowe and Bulleen, can assist with back pain, muscular pain, neck pain plus prevention and/or rehabilitation from an injury.
