Assessment and Treatment
Initial assessment consists of a thorough history of the presenting complaint. This is followed by a physical assessment including posture, movement, strength, special tests and palpation. A treatment plan is then designed and discussed with the patient. The aim of treatment is to identify and address causative factors of the complaint or injury, treat any muscle imbalances using Soft tissue Massage, Cupping, Myofascial Dry Needling, Neuromuscular techniques, stretching and taping. Your Myotherapist will provide you with corrective exercises to improve posture, range of motion and strength.
If your Myotherapist feels that you require extra care they will provide you with a referral to either a Medical or Allied Health Practitioner.
