Myotherapy and Remedial Massage
Myotherapy is a form of manual hands on therapy which focuses on assessment, treatment and management of your musculoskeletal system – that is your muscles, joints ligament’s and tendon’s. At Equilibrium Sports and Spinal Clinic, our Myotherapist’s and Remedial Massage therapist’s go the extra mile to ensure your treatment is specific to you and your condition. Always putting you first.
The goal of each Myotherapy treatment is to identify your bodies dysfunctional area’s. Aspects such as trigger points, muscle spasm and tightness, sprains or strains and to try and provide relief, improve strength and flexibility and restore your overall body health.
Your uniquely tailored Myotherapy treatment will involve:
Initially a comprehensive case history is taken. This allow’s your therapist to get to know you as an individual. They will identify the cause of your pain or injury, determine the best treatment and management plan and implement it together with you as a TEAM.
Your hands on sessions will always be tailored to your pain thresholds, use techniques you are comfortable with, always working towards getting you great results, FAST
Your therapist will ensure you are always well informed and have a good understanding of why treatment techniques and styles have been chosen.
We will always try and provide, where safe and appropriate, additional strengthening and rehabilitative exercises to compliment your hands on treatment sessions. We find this approach results in quicker and longer lasting results
