Myotherapy (at our centre)

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascial dysfunction. Myofascial tissue refers to the thin, fibrous sheets of tissue that surround and separate muscles. Ligaments and tendons are comprised of bundled myofascial tissue. The philosophy of myotherapy is founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics. You don’t need a referral from a doctor to make an appointment with a myotherapist.

The myotherapist will work with you to identify factors that may be making your condition worse (such as poor posture, scoliosis or overtraining) and help you find ways to avoid or reduce these aggravating factors.   If something cannot be changed (for example, arthritis or age-related changes to spinal discs), the myotherapist will develop a pain management program. This may involve referral to other healthcare professionals. Myotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of disorders including:

  • overuse injury such as tennis elbow or shin splints
  • some sports injuries
  • tension headache
  • pain caused by poor posture
  • some types of chronic back pain
  • some types of joint pain, such as shoulder impingement syndrome
  • muscle sprains
