Your myotherapy treatment consists of an evidence based assessment, treatment, management and rehabilitation for your musculoskeletal pain and/or dysfunction. Your myotherapist will treat both the immediate symptoms and the underlying cause of your musculoskeletal pain and/or dysfunction, whether it be behavioural, postural, muscular imbalance or structural. The aim of your myotherapy treatments is to improve your joint range of motion, reduce your pain and strengthen your muscles.
Your treatment is individualised by your myotherapist to suit you depending on your presenting condition.
