What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy that focuses on the assessment, treatment, and management of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. It involves the use of manual therapy techniques to treat muscle pain, soft tissue injuries, and joint problems, helping to restore normal movement and function.

Benefits of Myotherapy

Our Approach

At Activ8 Myotherapy, our approach is comprehensive and patient-centered. We start with a detailed assessment to understand your specific condition and health goals. Based on this assessment, our skilled therapists develop a customised treatment plan that may include various techniques such as deep tissue massage, dry needling, trigger point therapy, and corrective exercises.

How Myotherapy Works

Myotherapy involves a range of techniques to treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction:

Manual Therapy

Techniques such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and stretching are used to alleviate muscle tension and improve flexibility.

Dry Needling

Involves the insertion of fine needles into trigger points to relieve pain and muscle tightness.

Trigger Point Therapy

Targets specific areas of tight muscle fibers that cause referred pain, releasing tension and improving muscle function.

Corrective Exercises

Prescribed exercises help in strengthening muscles, improving posture, and enhancing overall movement patterns.
