When To See A Myotherapist
Myotherapy is applied in the rehabilitative, corrective and preventative phases of therapy to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).
The aim of Myotherapy is to treat the cause as well as the symptoms of a wide range of conditions.
Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or fascia (connective tissue) are described as “myofascial”.
The cause of musculoskeletal pain and symptoms in many conditions is myofascial. It may originate from abnormal muscle contraction or trigger points in muscle or fascia.
These are often experience by the individual as feeling of ‘tightness’ or ‘knots’ within the muscles.
