Do you suffer from chronic pain in your back, neck, shoulders or joints? Then it might be time to try Myotherapy in Brisbane. Whilst not new, this amazing treatment is growing in popularity thanks to its impressive results.
It was American fitness guru Bonnie Prudden who coined the term Myotherapy in the 1970s. She created the treatment based on the use of trigger point therapy, previously researched by Dr Janet Travell and David Simons.
Myotherapy has a very impressive claim to fame: it was used by Dr Travell to treat President John F Kennedy. Having tried every conceivable way of treating his chronic back pain, Kennedy found Myotherapy to be the only method that worked.
The advantage of Myotherapy is that it combines several modalities to deliver a holistic solution to chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia. It is a hands-on technique that tackles not only the symptoms but also the cause of the problem.
Myotherapy in Adelaide may incorporate exercise prescription, thermo and electro-therapeutic techniques, dry needling, joint mobilisation and stretching. The therapist may also work in conjunction with physiotherapists and osteopaths.
Choose a Professional
Whilst massage is one of the main tools used by the Myotherapist, the treatment is different. It requires greater study and more qualifications, which is why you should always choose a professional.
Myotherapists largely focus on the fascia, the thick tissue that surrounds all our bones and muscles. Fascia runs from our head to our toes, so damage in one area may cause problems in another. It is meant to be soft, relaxed and flexible; when it isn't the problems begin.
Your therapist will most likely use Myofascial Release to remedy this. Combined with massage and other modalities the results can be quite spectacular. Many people who have suffered from chronic pain for years have found relief with Myotherapy in Brisbane.
