Myotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of disorders including:
- Overuse injury such as tennis elbow or shin splints
- Sports injuries
- Tension headache
- Pain caused by poor posture
- Chronic back pain
- Joint pain, such as shoulder impingement syndrome
- Muscle sprains
A lot of the time, people are only aware of a problem with their body once they are already in pain. Regular myotherapy visits can help reduce the cause of muscle pain, tension and even injuries before they become problematic.
By targeting trigger points in the body your myotherapist can release pain and tension.
Trigger points are generalised as the irritability in muscles and their associated fascia. Trigger points are activated directly by overloading the muscle, overworking, fatigue and direct trauma. Myofascial trigger points can create different types of pain. It could be knife-like or stabbing, dull and achy, burning, numb or even tingly.
Trigger point pain can include headaches that are often diagnosed as tension, sinus or migraine, neck pain that radiates into the arm and forearm and into the lower back, thigh and leg.
Not only can a myotherapist treat you during a consultation, they can also teach you and show you many techniques to promote wellbeing and allow you to help yourself and strengthen your own body against illness and injury.
