Maximizing Results: The Role of Exercise Prescription in Myotherapy Treatment Plans

Learn how exercise prescription can help you achieve optimal results with myotherapy treatment. Improve strength, flexibility and range of motion with targeted exercises.

As a myotherapist at Mornington Peninsula Myotherapy and Massage, I often include exercises in my clients treatment plan. Exercise prescription is a key aspect of myotherapy, as it can help to improve strength, flexibility and range of motion. It will also help to prevent further injury.

When developing an exercise plan, I think about each client's individual needs and goals, as well as any physical limitations or medical conditions they may have presented with. Exercises may include resistance training, stretching and functional movements that mimic daily activities.

Resistance training is used to help improve muscle strength and endurance, which can be really beneficial for individuals recovering from injury or managing their chronic pain. Stretching is used to improve flexibility and reduce muscle tension. Functional movements can help to improve balance, coordination and overall functional ability.

It's important that exercise prescription should be tailored to each individual and should be done under the guidance of a qualified myotherapist or other healthcare professional. Incorrect exercise technique or overload can lead to further injury or worsening of existing conditions.

In summary, exercise prescription is an important part of myotherapy and can help to improve strength, flexibility and range of motion. By working with a myotherapist, individuals can develop a tailored exercise plan that is safe, effective and supportive of their individual needs and goals.
