How Myotherapy Differs

This is one of the most common questions we are asked, as Myotherapists we specialise in assessing, treating and managing the soft tissue structures within the body including the muscles. Myotherapists do this to stop or reduce pain, prevent injuries and correct damage. Myotherapy is similar to Physiotherapy and Osteopathy in that we treat similar conditions and symptoms however Myotherapy varies a lot in treatment methods. It is not for us to explain the principles behind the other therapies however Myotherapy :

  • Specialises in the muscle, tendons ligaments and fascia
  • Can assess joint and boney conditions/dysfunction
  • Consultations are one on one for the entire time
  • Tailored treatments for each individual - as gentle or strong as required
  • The nervous, circulatory and skeletal systems often benefit from Myotherapy treatments
  • Myotherapists refer to other therapists when needed

At Bendigo Myotherapy we provide the highest quality patient care making certain ample time for assessment and treatment is provided. Consultations are approximately forty-five minutes in duration; the practitioner spends the entire time one on one with the client.

Bendigo Myotherapy recognises that no one therapist or therapy can fix every problem. If your condition is one that Myotherapy can not fix entirely, we can still help you reach your health goals through our extensive network of allied health professionals ensuring the comprehensive management of conditions and accelerated recovery.

Some of these include :

  • Osteopathy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Exercise Therapists
  • Chinese Medicine
  • Naturopathy
  • Podiatry
  • Doctors

How to Know Who to See

Deciding which therapists to see for your pain can be very difficult as self diagnosis is often unreliable.

A helpful tip is; if heat helps ease your Pain or Symptom it is more likely to be muscular in origin, so you are best off seeing someone who specialises in treating the muscles…. such as a myotherapist.

If you are not sure who you should see for your condition feel free to call Bendigo Myotherapy as one of our Myotherapists would be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
