What to Expect
Myotherapy is a branch of manual therapy that focuses on the treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
Your therapist will conduct a visual and physical assessment of your presenting complaint as well as discussing your full medical history to assess where your symptoms are originating from. Your assessment is likely to take anywhere from 10 - 20 minutes at your initial session followed by an initial treatment.
Myotherapy has a strong focus on corrective/rehabilitative exercise prescription and education to ensure your treatments produce sustainable results. Your therapist will also provide corrective or rehabilitative exercises for you to continue your treatment between sessions.
On subsequent visits, your therapist will discuss any changes in your symptoms and adjust your treatment to suit.
