Remedial Massage or Myotherapy/Musculoskeletal Therapy?
While remedial massage is recommended for more basic complaints like sore muscles or achiness, musculoskeletal therapy or myotherapy (same thing, different name) is more appropriate when the issue is chronic, injury related or sports related. Brisbane Natural Health’s musculoskeletal therapists / myotherapists also can assess the cause of pain or dysfunction, so are great when you’re just not sure what the problem is. Musculoskeletal therapists / myotherapists employ a wide range of tests and techniques during your treatment, depending on what you need the most.
Some of the techniques that may be used during your treatment are:
- Muscle and joint testing
- Specific massage techniques
- Myofascial release
- Soft tissue work
- Joint mobilisations
During your initial myotherapy massage appointment, you’ll be assessed by your practitioner using a number of tests. Your therapist will also ask you specific questions about your condition to determine what the best treatment will be for you. You’ll also receive an exercise and rehabilitation program if needed to help get you feeling good as soon as possible. At Brisbane Natural Health, our myotherapists have the training and experience to help with a wide range of problems.
Some of the more common issues that they treat are:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Tennis elbow
- TMJ issues
- Lifting sprains
At Brisbane Natural Health our myotherapists Sarah Kenner and Nicole Anskaitis help patients with complex and chronic conditions every day, helping to alleviate their pain and discomfort.
