MYOTHERAPISTS OPERATING IN THE MELBOURNE CBD
CityHealth provides myotherapy treatment for a range of problems and to prevent future injuries. Located in the Melbourne CBD, we are conveniently situated to treat patients from throughout the greater metropolitan region.
Myotherapy may employ a number of treatment modalities such as soft tissue manipulation, myofascial stretching, thermal therapy, myofascial dry needling, electrical stimulation (TENS), and corrective exercises.
Using a combination of tactile skill, anatomical knowledge and clinical understanding, the Myotherapist can identify abnormalities in muscles and connective tissues to determine the most appropriate and effective therapeutic techniques to be used in treatment.
Education is also important to engage patients in the recovery process, and assist in the prevention of future injuries.
WHAT IS MYOFASCIAL DRY NEEDLING?
Myofascial dry needling is primarily focused on musculoskeletal injuries and is utilised as a specialist tool to accompany soft tissue skills. Dry needling involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into active trigger points (hypertonic muscle lesions) to relieve pain, resolve musculoskeletal pain patterns associated with the specific points and restore freedom of movement. Stimulation of trigger points using dry needling can de-sensitise these points and associated referral pain areas, promote healing and enhance production of endorphins.
Dry needling can be used to treat conditions such as joint pain and osteoarthritis, inflammatory conditions such as tendonitis and disc pain, headache and migraine, post-surgical conditions, back pain, as well as acute and chronic trigger point pain.
