Myotherapy in Caroline Springs, VIC
Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy for the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions. At take2health, our Myotherapist’s use a wide range of treatment techniques that aim to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures.
They work with the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.Using well-trained palpation skills, our Myotherapist’s can identify trigger points within muscles and other areas of muscular dysfunction, and deactivate them using various soft tissue manipulation techniques. Dysfunction can often be caused by trauma, overload or misuse of muscles arising from occupational, sporting or recreational activities.
What is involved in a Myotherapy treatment?
A consultation with a take2health Myotherapist, will involve a full case history, which is then followed by muscle, joint and neurological testing procedures. Treatment with one of our Myotherapists is predominantly a “hands on” approach, and may include soft tissue massage, cupping, dry needling, trigger points, muscle stretching and corrective exercise/ postural advice. Our Myotherapist will aim to identify the cause of your pain and provide effective and long lasting results.
