Treatment Methods

Prahran and Highett Myotherapy utilise a range of physical modalities to assess, treat, and prevent muscular conditions that cause myofascial pain, injury, and dysfunction, such as:

  • Trigger point therapy
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Myofascial dry needling
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
  • Thermal therapies e.g. therapeutic ultrasound
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Myofascial stretching
  • Myofascial cupping
  • Corrective and rehabilitative exercises

We assess and manage and rehabilitate any conditions or symptoms relating to the musculoskeletal system. Muscular problems are usually caused by overloading the muscles we use in everyday life. Once a muscle becomes overloaded, it reacts by contracting and trigger points are formed throughout the muscle. Myotherapy involves locating and deactivating these trigger points, so that the body can revert to its normal pain-free muscular state.

Treatments include deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial dry needling, myofascial release, Chinese cupping, heat therapy, cryotherapy/cold therapy, PNF and passive stretching, patient education and prescribed self-help stretches, corrective exercise program and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).
