History and progression of Myotherapy
The term Myotherapy was derived from the Latin word for muscle, “Myo”, and was developed here in Melbourne in the 1980’s. Myotherapy was developed to fill a niche in the allied heath field where there was limited specific soft tissue treatment options. Myotherapy was developed to provide muscle and soft tissue care. However, the practice of Myotherapy has progressed extensively since it’s muscle focus in the 80’s and now blends modern science with hands on treatment.
What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy involves the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions that can contribute to pain. At Tecoma Myotherapy we still use alot of hands on treatment, but this is gateway for us to explore why you are in pain. We will listen to your story and journey and look at all the different contributors for why you hurt. We will then help you make sense of where you at at and how we are going to move you forward to engage in what you love and value using graded exposure (start easy and build slowly) of exercise and movement and changing your relationship to the pain.
