As a myotherapist, one of the most important aspects of my work is injury prevention. By addressing muscle imbalances and postural problems, myotherapy can help prevent future injuries, whether you're an athlete or simply someone who wants to maintain good physical health. Here's how it works:

First, your myotherapist will assess your posture and movement patterns to identify any areas of weakness or imbalance. This may involve a range of tests and assessments, such as range of motion tests, muscle strength tests, and functional movement screens.

Based on this assessment, your myotherapist will develop a treatment plan that may include a range of techniques, such as deep tissue massage, dry needling, cupping and trigger point therapy, as well as exercises and stretches to help improve your strength and flexibility.

One of the key benefits of myotherapy is that it can be tailored to your individual needs and goals. Whether you're recovering from an injury, preparing for a sports competition, or simply looking to improve your overall health and wellbeing, myotherapy can help you achieve your goals.

By addressing muscle imbalances and postural problems, myotherapy can help reduce your risk of injury during physical activity and everyday life. It can also help you maintain good physical health and function, allowing you to stay active and engaged in the activities you enjoy.
