Hey! As a myotherapist, I'm excited to share with you the science behind myotherapy and how it can help you relieve pain and return to normal function.
Myotherapy is based on a thorough understanding of the muscles and other soft tissues that make up our bodies. By understanding the different types of muscle fibres and their roles in movement and stability, myotherapists can pinpoint the root causes of pain and dysfunction and develop targeted treatment plans to address them.
There are two main types of muscle fibres, slow twitch and fast twitch. Slow twitch fibres are fatigue resistant, they are responsible for endurance activities such as running or cycling, while fast twitch fibres are responsible for bigger and more powerful movements, such as sprinting or jumping. All the muscles in the body are made up of a combination of these fibres, and their composition can affect how the muscle functions.
When muscles become strained or torn, it can cause pain and limit mobility. Myotherapy uses a range of techniques, such as massage, stretching and exercise prescription to restore the balance and function of your muscles. By targeting the specific areas of pain and dysfunction, myotherapists can help you to regain your range of motion and get back to doing the things you love with much less pain.
