Myotherapy can best be defined as the assessment, treatment & management of musculoskeletal conditions. To make sense of this, when you see a myotherapist, they will assess your condition to find out what is causing you pain, provide treatment in the form of manual therapy to correct the problem, and then manage you back to 100% health. The difference between massage and myotherapy is that massage is just one tool that a myotherapist uses to treat problem. A myotherapist will also use dry needling, joint mobilisation, stretching, behaviour and lifestyle modifications, and exercise prescription and rehabilitation to enhance the patient’s health and restore function.

This is especially important around the hip joint, the most powerful joint in our body’s, across which many of our largest and strongest muscles span.
