Myotherapy and massage is a clinically proven, drug-free way to deal with the pain and discomfort caused by musculoskeletal dysfunction and injury.
Don’t Live With Chronic Pain!
There are so many causes to chronic musculoskeletal pain, ranging from dysfunctional movement patterns, previous injuries, nerve, joint and disc conditions, and even chronic illness. Pain is a complex experience, and everyone experiences it differently. Our job as Myotherapists is to discover the main contributors to your ongoing pain, and help you to address each area through treatment, rehabilitation, education and advice. We are able to treat the tissue damage, correct the surrounding tissue adaptations, assess the level of neurological “noise” that is creating your pain, and help you to fix the main stimuli that keep the pain ongoing.
Our treatments are designed around understanding pain from our patient’s perspective, as this is the only interpretation that really matters. We make decisions about treatment plans in partnership with our patients, making sure that our patients understand their condition, and the other factors (such as ergonomics, stress management, neurological upregulation or movement biomechanics) that contribute to why their pain exists, and why it continues. This allows patients to make informed decisions about their own care and rehabilitation.
All pain is real. It is not in your head. (Well, it is, in that the brain is registering and responding to stimuli – but that is a real, physiological process!) Our therapists take your pain seriously, and will work WITH you to help you find a way out of the painful state.
Let us help you make pain a distant memory!
What is Pain? And how does it become a chronic condition?
Pain alerts the brain to potential or actual tissue damage, and it involves all the body systems related to healing and protection. Pain is a signal to get you to change something about the situation that is causing the pain. However there are occasions (especially with chronic pain) where the pain can persist even after the actual injury has healed. This is often because the brain perceives that a threat still remains, and keeps the tissues and nerves in “protection mode” – meaning behaviours such as ongoing spasm and pain can occur. In this sensitised state, the brain is being told that there is more danger to the tissues than there actually is. It’s like the brain has turned up (or sometimes down) the volume on the pain setting – and that volume is not always reflective of the health of the tissues.
We aim to change the neural pathways that create this distortion, by resetting the information being sent by the neurones. We do this through a number of different techniques – from gentle massage, to trigger point therapy, joint mobilisations or even dry needling (with permission from the patient).
Pain Management can be used for many conditons, including:
- Sciatica or Disc Bulge
- Overuse Injuries such as Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy, Tennis Elbow or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Neck or Shoulder Pain
- Chronic Lower Back Pain and Spasm
- Headaches and Migraine
- Jaw Pain
- Plantar Fascitis
- Autoimmune Conditions and other Chronic Illness
Our Myotherapists will design a treatment and rehabilitation program that will address why your pain began, why it continues, and teach you how to manage any ongoing concerns that may affect its return. The more our patients understand about their pain, and how to keep it away, the less they need us! And ultimately our job is to help people become pain free again!
