Here at Body Active Myotherapy we treat a range of conditions associated with muscle pain. Some of the common conditions treated by a Myotherapist include:
Myotherapy involves an extensive physical evaluation and an integrated therapeutic approach in the treatment of affected muscles, joints and nerves. For this reason initial consultations are 60 minutes in duration.
A typical initial consultation will commence with a thorough intake of client medical history and symptoms, followed by a postural assessment. A range of tests are then conducted on targeted muscles, joints and nerves based on the presenting symptoms. This is done in conjunction with manual palpation of muscles and joints. This extensive evaluation helps your myotherapist to identify the root cause of your condition and allow them to form an effective treatment plan. Your treatment plan will include some of these treatment techniques.
Depending on your medical condition, you may be referred to another healthcare professional for further diagnosis or treatment.
