Myotherapy Oak Park
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.
