Do you have pain or discomfort? Need help recovering from sports or injuries? Musculoskeletal therapists / Myotherapists help patients overcome most types of body pain and discomfort. Their treatments involve a combination of massage and physiotherapy-like techniques to treat the cause of pain and discomfort where it is needed the most.  This means your treatment is targeted so that you can get to the bottom of your issue for long lasting relief.

While remedial massage is recommended for more basic complaints like sore muscles or achiness, musculoskeletal therapy 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
  • Strapping

During your initial musculoskeletal therapy 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.
