Myotherapy Geelong

What is Myotherapy ?

 

Myotherapy is provided by a qualified therapist or allied health professional that
focuses on the assessment, treatment, and management of musculoskeletal pain
and dysfunction. It is primarily used to alleviate pain, restore movement, and improve
overall muscle and joint health.

Tom Black, our in house myotherapist at Empowered Health Chiropractic, shares 5 reasons to try myotherapy.

5 reasons to try Myotherapy

1. It can reduce pain. Using a range of different Deep tissue massage
techniques, Muscle energy techniques, dry needling, cupping & exercise
prescription it can target trigger points.

2. It can improve mobility. Myotherapy is targeted treatment at muscle groups
and joints that might not be functioning to full capacity. Poor mobility can lead
to dysfunctional movement patterns.

3. Myotherapy can help improve sporting performance. Be a weekend warrior or
an Elite athlete, Myotherapy can help improve recovery or performance.

4. Muscles support our movement. Good muscle function is important for
everyday life. Myotherapists are highly trained in human anatomy we can
specialise in helping you get stronger with any concerns you might have.

5. As we age our joints can become arthritic, Myotherapy can assist in the
management of this to help prevent any unnecessary surgery.

During an initial consultation your Myotherapist will listen to your concerns while
completing an in-depth assessment. We use a range of orthopaedic & special tests
designed to draw a picture of what might be happening for the patient. We also might
ask you to move in a number of different ways looking for range of motion deficits to
help develop the best treatment plan for you.

Common questions

What if I haven’t tried all the fancy modalities mentioned above?

Don’t worry booking in for an extended 60 minute Myotherapy treatment can be the
best place to start. You can still achieve good results through the hands on
‘massage’ approach!
Tom is highly trained in all other modalities. If you haven’t had them before, ask
about how they could help benefit you in your next session.

Can I use my private health insurance for Myotherapy?

Absolutely, if you have private insurance you can claim on the spot with Tom at the
end of your session. If you’re unsure if you’re covered, double check with your
insurance company. Most health care policies renew on January 1st.
