What is Myotherapy?
Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or fascia is described as myofascial. Myofascial pain is usually not specific and is often described by a client as a 'deep ache', 'tightness' or 'tenderness' in an area. It can vary in intensity and radiate to other areas.
Other symptoms can include restriction of range of movement, stiffness, fatigue, weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation. There are many other symptoms depending on the condition and clients can have one or many symptoms.
Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction caused by trauma, overload or misuse of muscles arising from occupational, sporting or recreational activities thus affecting movement and mobility.
