Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to assess, treat and prevent muscle pain, injury and dysfunction. It is a physical form of therapy that has substantial experience in musculoskeletal conditions affecting movement and mobility. Founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, it is used to rehabilitate and maintain the integrity of the soft-tissue structures of the body (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia). It is the integration of a range of techniques that make Myotherapy such an effective and powerful treatment method.
