What does a myotherapist do

A Myotherapy consultation will typically commence with thorough history taking followed by various muscle, joint and neurological testing. Combined with manual palpation of muscles and joints, a Myotherapist aims to identify the cause of one’s pain to ensure quick, effective and long lasting results.

What conditions can a myotherapist treat

Myotherapists treat the cause as well as the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. Some examples of conditions commonly treated by myotherapists are:

  • Neck & backpain
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Sciatica
  • Chronic Overuse (RSI)
  • Tennis/Golfers elbow
  • Joint pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • General tightness
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Knee, hip & ankle pain
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Elbow & wrist pain
  • Pregnancy and Post Pregnancy pain issues

When should I see a myotherapist

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.

Do I need a referral to see a myotherapist

A referral letter is not necessary to see a Myotherapist unless you are a WorkCover patient. Most myotherapists work in private practices and are usually the first point of call when patients are injured.
