Myotherapy is a system of health care primarily focusing on assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain or dysfunction. Myotherapy is used in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions as well as preventative management. Keeping in mind you don’t necessarily have to be in pain to receive treatment, many people have regular maintenance to enhance their health and wellbeing. Or often, your therapist can find musclular dysfunctions and resolve them before they become an issue.
