So what exactly is myotherapy?
Myotherapy consists of assessing, treating, and managing the pain associated with soft tissue injury and restricted joint mobility which has been caused by myofascia or muscle dysfunction.
The compact, tough tissue which covers and surrounds all of your bones and muscle is known as Myofascia.
It can be likened to a complete body suit which runs from the top of your head to the ends of your toes and is strong and flexible.
It's continuous with no beginning and no end and connects every part of your body together. In its normal healthy state it is relaxed and soft and can move and stretch without restriction.
However, when physical trauma or inflammation occurs, the myofascia loses its pliability and can become restricted and tight, causing tension throughout the body.
What are the symptoms of soft tissue pain?
Pain resulting from muscle fascia or muscle tissue is known as myofascial pain and symptoms to look out for include:
Constant deep nagging pain
Sore spots in the muscle (also known as myofascial trigger points)
Recurring “pins and needles” or tingling sensation
Tightening of the muscles
Reduced mobility in the joints
Feeling tired for no reason
What does myotherapy treatment involve?
A myotherapist has undergone specialist training to detect and treat the cause of your problems. As well as massage techniques a myotherapist uses a range of other therapies including:
Passive stretching (gently moving the affected body part through its range of motion)
Acupressure to trigger points
Muscle energy techniques (METS)
