WHAT IS MYOTHERAPY?
Myotherapy is a manual therapy that focuses on assessing, treating and managing muscular pain and the restriction of joint movements.
Myotherapy is applied at any stage of an individual’s injury and is continued into the maintenance stage of recovery. This helps restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body.
Myofascial (muscle) pain is often described by the individual as a deep or dull ache, tightness or tenderness in an area. Other symptoms can include a reduced range of movement, stiffness, fatigue, weakness, numbness or tingling sensations.
Common conditions a Myotherapist can treat include:
· Sporting and occupational injuries.

· Shoulder and neck pain (Frozen shoulder, bursitis,whiplash etc).
· Pregnancy massage and infant massage.
· Fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis.
