As you would expect in one of Australia's largest cities, Sydney is home to some of the country's best health practitioners. This is great news for those who prefer alternative therapies.
If you are seeking a better way to treat chronic pain, you would be well advised to try Myotherapy in Sydney. This amazing treatment, which combines several modalities, is achieving great results for those who have long battled pain.
The Same But Different
Myotherapy is not only ideal for sudden pain conditions, such as sports injuries and back pain, but also long-term problems such as fibromyalgia.
People often confuse Myotherapy with massage or even Musculoskeletal Therapy. All three are similar but definitely not the same. Myotherapy is popular throughout Australia but was first used extensively in Victoria. In fact, the first Myotherapy training course was run in Melbourne in 1989.
Myotherapy uses massage, joint mobilisation, stretching, exercise, hot and cold packs and even dry needling to achieve results. It's a very hands-on approach and is proven to be very effective. Training is extensive and you should always choose a qualified practitioner.
Often referred to as Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy, this treatment has been around for a while. It was Prudden who gave it its name in the 1970s, but it is based on research done in the 1950s.
Trigger Point Therapy
The basis of Myotherapy as we know it today is trigger point therapy. Developed by Dr Janet Travell, the treatment was even used on US President John F Kennedy. It is said trigger point therapy was the only treatment that gave Kennedy relief from his chronic back pain.
