What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapists use a wide range of treatment techniques such as:

Myotherapy is manual medicine.

A unique form of physical therapy is used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascial dysfunction. 

Its focus combines various elements of Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics to provide holistic musculoskeletal treatments for patients with a broad scope of medical conditions. As allied health professionals, Myotherapists use targeted trigger point therapy developed by the work of Travell and Simons in combination with soft tissue massage to treat pain, manage symptoms and alleviate discomfort that affect activity and mobility. Myotherapy is often used in conjunction with a treatment team which may include other allied health practitioners like physiotherapists, osteopaths, podiatrists and chiropractors or medical professionals.

Myotherapists are qualified professionals who care and manage patients by looking at your body as a whole, assessing any underlying issues and identifying the origin of specific pain. Consultations are tailored to the individual conditions of the patient including through pregnancy, sports injury and injury management, post-surgery rehabilitation, chronic illness and conditioning.

Benefits of Myotherapy

Conditions and Disorders

Australian Allied Health Network (AAHN) recognises that there is no singular treatment or protocol to follow for each patient. Therefore, each treatment possesses a tailored session that is in-depth and thoroughly understands the patients’ needs and goals, level of assistance or intervention mechanisms that need to be put in place to get results. AAHN is a broad treating specialist facility.

We frequently treat patients who may have or are experiencing symptoms commonly associated with:

Chronic headaches and migraines

Headaches can cause pain throughout the front and side of the head, face and neck. Headaches can vary in pain levels, intensity and frequency. Migraines change in severity, often associated with nausea, sensitivity to noise, sound, light and colours.

TMJ (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction)

Jaw pain which can be associated with difficulty with chewing, jaw joint pain, clicking, locking and grinding of the jaw. People can feel facial pain, tenderness in their jaw point and difficulty opening and closing the mouth.

Lower back pain

Pain throughout the lower part of the spine which effects the hip and gluteal areas. Lower back pain can be caused by certain injuries of a muscle strain or ligament sprain.

Thoracic pain

Pain throughout the middle part of the spine which causes inflammation, muscle spasms and soft tissue injuries. This pain can result from car accidents, whiplash and sporting injuries. Pain can often worsen when sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time.

Fibromyalgia

Attributable to issues with the spine, arthritis, injury and physical pressure or stress, including emotional and psychological deteriorating or trauma.

Shoulder pain

Physical discomfort and tenderness of the shoulder including weakened muscles, tendons and ligaments that support joint and structures of the shoulder.

Rib pain

A broad and common discomfort or pain that can be caused by a range of health factors including fractures, inflammation and soreness. Common symptoms include tenderness around the ribcage area, bruising, swelling, pulled muscles and breathing difficulties.

Knee pain

Pain in or around the knee, muscles around the thigh and groin region. Likely to be caused from sporting injuries, trips and falls, arthritis in the joints and over use.

Neurological sensations

Present as tingling and numbness in the hands, fingers and legs due to compression, irritation or damage to the nerves and tendons. This will likely have a strong connection to the central nervous system and muscular skeletal system.

Wry and stiff neck

Development of a painful neck throughout one side with symptoms that usually have a relatively quick onset that are commonly caused from factors such as poor head and neck support.

Laterial Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)

Pain and swelling caused by the inflammation of tendons in the elbow joint due to overuse and repetitive movements. Symptoms often include: tenderness, loss of sensation throughout the forearm and hand, muscle weakness.

 

Medial epicondylitis (Golfers Elbow)

Pain and swelling caused by inflammation to the inner elbow and forearm region, including the wrist. Symtptoms are experienced strongly when bending the wrist toward the palm against resistance, or when squeezing a rubber ball and can often present similar to Laterial Epicondylitis.

Foot and ankle pain

Caused by poor foot biomechanics, incorrect footwear and other underlying health and medical issues, slips, trips and falls, overuse or rolling of the ankle. Foot strains and sprains are frequently associated with this condition.

Shin splints

Refers to aches, pain, soreness or redness that occurs anywhere along the shinbone, frequently directed towards the knee or ankle. It is caused by overuse, poor technique during physical movement, poor quality footwear and high impact activities and can be felt at any time – even when stationary or taking breaks from physical movement.

Chronic Overuse Syndrome

Caused by repetitive movements, motions and positions that have a negative impact on an individual’s day-to-day activity. It is commonly associated with sports injuries, achilles tendon ruptures, fractures, breaks, dislocations and rotator cuff ruptures.

Poor Posture

Refers to the uneven weight distribution and positioning of the body when sitting or standing that causes weakened body structure. This is particularly evident throughout pain or soreness in the spine, back, neck, shoulders, arms and abdominal wall and may present as a feeling of ‘pressure’. 

Occupational injuries

These injuries take place whilst an individual is completing duties that relate to their employment and vary greatly in nature and can occur from a workplace incident or injury caused over time.

Sciatica

Sharp and tingling sensations that radiate through the glute region, down the legs and underneath the foot. It is usually caused by a herniated disc or bone spur that placed pressure on the nerves that run throughout the spine.

Arthritis

There are over 100 different types of arthritis but is commonly associated with joint paint or disease. Individuals will suffer from swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion that can be ongoing or that drift in peaks.

Pregnancy

Aches and pains that occur as a result of individuals who are carrying an infant, generally felt throughout the back, abdomen, groin area and thighs.
