Myotherapy Toorak

Myotherapy Toorak

Myotherapy is the evidence based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions Our myotherapy Toorak team treat anything and everything from neck and back pain, overloading issues, sporting injuries, knee pain, migraines, sciatica, shoulder issues and even more.

It involves the assessment, treatment, management and rehabilitation of any conditions or symptoms relating to the musculoskeletal system. Muscular problems are usually caused by overloading the muscles we use in everyday life. Once a muscle becomes overloaded, it reacts by going into contraction and trigger points are formed throughout the muscle.

Trigger points can cause a person to experience pain, muscle weakness, restricted mobility and degeneration of the muscle.  Myotherapy Toorak involves locating and deactivating these trigger points, so that the body can revert back to its normal pain-free muscular state. These may be the result of a number of factors including poor posture, overuse of muscles and stress.
