Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy which focuses on assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal pain and allied pathologies that cause muscular dysfunction. These ailments may cause pain affecting movement and mobility in your everyday activities or specific exercises that you do. Myotherapy treatment relieves pain by applying pressure at the trigger points (hypersensitive places in muscles) of the affected areas. Alternative Myotherapy is a therapy and rehabilitation clinic where Ali – a Myotherapist from Melbourne with hands-on experience of over 10 years, provides Myotherapy and related therapies in Melbourne.

When do you need Myotherapy Treatment?

Myofacial pain strikes with common symptoms like reduced joint mobility, stiff joints, numbness, deep and constant aching, muscle tingling, tightness, and “pins or needles’ sensation, recurrent prickling, etc. Myotherapy treats the symptoms as well as the cause of myofacial pain by restoring and maintaining the typical integrity of soft tissue structures (tendons, muscles, fascia and ligaments).

Myotherapy Treatment can also treat a broad range of ailments including: tension, headache, overuse injury such as shin splints or tennis elbow, some sports injuries, some types of prolonged back pain, joint pain, muscle sprains, shoulder impingement syndrome, pain caused by poor posture, etc. If you are suffering from arthritis, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome, myotherapy in Brunswick can provide great comfort to your pain. With Myotherapy treatment, patients ailing from multiple sclerosis also experience reductions in inflammation.

Myotherapy to treat Trigger Points

Trigger points are one of the most common ailments that can be treated with Myotherapy. Trigger points are the areas of knotted or tight muscle fibres that are often caused by injury, disease or stress. Ali, the myotherapist at Alternative Myotherapy with over 10 years of experience in Melbourne, first analyses the trigger points of pain. The next step involves locating and diffusing the trigger points of pain through applying pressure. This may also include a series of exercises to stretch the muscles that have been relaxed by the therapy. Elimination of these trigger points can aid relieve chronic and intense pain. Moreover, you don’t even need a doctor’s consultation before booking an appointment with a Myotherapist in Melbourne.
