Myotherapy

Myotherapy at FSM

Myotherapy is an essential component of Freedom Sports Medicine.  Our Myotherapists examine, control and treat a range of concerns arising from musculoskeletal concerns coming from joints, ligaments, tendons as well as the connective tissue (fascia) of the body.

Myotherapists are highly qualified hands on therapists and need to complete a 2-3 year full time course to become fully qualified.

Sport, injuries, stress, work and accidents can cause your muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia to become damaged or sore.  FSM’s Myotherapists restore optimal function through deep tissue manipulation, myofascial techniques, dry needling, cupping, or provide home exercises to help alleviate your pain and dysfunction.

Myotherapy is very effective and is used to loosen tight muscles, joints, alleviate stress and daily tension as well as prevent further injuries from occurring and assist your recovery from your rehabilitation or training.  It is a great idea to incorporate a regular Myotherapy session to help maximise your physical health for a range of reasons.

What happens in an appointment?

We offer an initial 1 hour consultation with the opportunity for reviews of either 1 hour or 45 minutes in subsequent consultations.  An initial consultation is initially needed so we can get to know you and establish what is needed to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.

In the initial 1 hour consultation you will expect to receive a thorough subjective and objective assessment that involves a discussion about your needs and an assessment of concerns through testing in the treatment room.  This then guides the Myotherapist to educate you on what in needed in your treatment, with the initial consultation typically having a 45-minute hands on intervention.   In subsequent reviews a quick reassessment and discussion will occur to ensure that you are on track to reaching your goals discussed in the initial consultation followed by hands on intervention to continue helping you on your journey.

Our team of Sports Physiotherapists, Physiotherapist, Podiatrists, Myotherapists and Pilates & GLA:D Practitioners based in Ringwood since 2014, will collaborate to determine the best possible approach to your treatment and recovery. In some cases, this may mean a referral to another FSM service so you have a family of experts who know your story and how to address it holistically.
