Oak Park Family Chiropractic offers quality myotherapy to local residents in Oak Park & surrounding areas.

Myotherapy is the evidence based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.

Myofacial pain is the medical term for describing muscular pain and discomfort, which is where the modality name is derived from. Treatment is directed at the fascia and other soft tissues which includes the muscles, tendons and ligaments. These elements provide the crucial support and protection for the internal organs and structures of the body, and if stimulated in the appropriate way can promote healing of the nervous, skeletal and circulatory systems, amongst others. Muscular pain is typically the result of an injury or strain related to repetitive motions, general fatigue, lack of exercise or a medical condition.

Myotherapy FAQs

What is the difference between massage and myotherapy?

There are a few key differences between remedial massage and myotherapy. Myotherapy is generally more focused on treating muscular pain and dysfunction, while remedial massage can be more holistic in its approach. Myotherapy often uses firmer pressure and targeted treatment techniques, while remedial massage may use lighter pressure and focus more on relaxation.  

How often should I see a myotherapist?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the frequency of myotherapy treatments will depend on each individual’s needs. However, it is generally recommended that people seek treatment every 1-2 weeks to begin with, and then decrease the frequency of appointments as their condition improves. 

What are the benefits of myotherapy?

There are many benefits of myotherapy, which can include reduced pain, improved range of motion, increased circulation and decreased stress levels. Myotherapy can also help to improve posture and prevent injuries. 

Does my private health insurance cover myotherapy?

Many private health insurers in Australia cover myotherapy treatments, though it is always best to check with your insurer to confirm coverage. Some insurers may require a referral from a GP before covering myotherapy, so it is worth checking this as well. 

What should I wear to my myotherapy appointment?

For your comfort, it is recommended that you wear loose, comfortable clothing to your myotherapy appointment. You may also be asked to remove some clothing so that the therapist can access the treated area, so it is best to wear something that is easy to remove.
