Myotherapy Melbourne

What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy relieves pain by treating muscles, soft tissue, ligaments and tendons. It is an evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Myotherapy massage is utilised to promote circulation and blood flow to create a healing effect within soft tissues. These techniques are designed to heal, rather than just relieve the symptoms of a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. If you’re looking for Myotherapy near me and want more information about what we have to offer, contact us today.

Rehabilitation exercises

Our goal is to help you recover, in order to increase your sense of well-being for lifestyle, work and sport. If required, your Myotherapist may design a rehabilitation program as part of your ongoing treatment plan. This may include a tailored at home or studio exercise program combining Pilates, stretches and/or Physiotherapy treatment, to ensure a speedy and long-term recovery.

Our Myotherapists are known for their ability to communicate with you, their hands-on and results driven approach and their confident manner when managing your health-care. At Core we take ongoing education very seriously which is why our Myotherapists and health practitioners are constantly updating their skills and using the latest evidence-based treatments to get you results and take care of your health. Our Myotherapists want you to feel great when you walk out of your appointment, but more importantly, they are focused on long-term results and the prevention of future injury.

How many Myotherapy Treatments will I need?

At Core Physio + Pilates, our objective is to help you recover as quickly as possible. We will encourage and support you to achieve the results you desire, through the most practical means available. You may need a one-off appointment or regular ongoing treatments depending on what is required. Your Myotherapist will discuss exactly what is expected about your ongoing care during your first appointment.

What should I bring with me?

Please bring along any referrals, scans, x-rays or reports which you may have.

What Should I wear to my Myotherapy Appointment?

Your normal every-day clothing is generally fine. However, if you are wearing restrictive clothing on the day we suggest you bring something a bit looser to change into as your Myotherapist will need to access the area requiring treatment. Ensuring you feel comfortable during your Myotherapy consultation is key.

How long is my Myo Appointment?

Your appointment may be 30-minutes to one hour, depending on the treatment required. This will all be confirmed with you at the time of booking.

What is the difference between Myotherapy
and Physiotherapy?

Myotherapists treat the muscles, soft tissue, ligaments and tendons of the body while Physiotherapists treat the structure and joint mechanisms of the body. Both use manual therapy to alleviate pain and discomfort, yet the way they do this varies. Myotherapists tend to have a slightly more hands-on approach during your appointment. Myotherapy and remedial massage is often used to treat patients as well as exercises, stretches, dry-needling, cupping and other massage techniques. At Core, we have a holistic approach to your body and your health, which means that our allied health practitioners work together to ensure you are receiving the best care focusing on the best outcomes for you and your health concerns.
