Understanding Myotherapy Services

Myotherapy is a distinct branch of manual therapy that focuses on the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal pain. It employs several techniques, including massage, dry needling, and joint mobilisation, among others, to treat various disorders such as sprains and soft tissue dysfunction.

Myotherapy services involve an array of treatment techniques applied to aid in pain relief and restore the function of various musculoskeletal components like tendons, ligaments, and fascia. Here at Surf & Sports Myo, we are proud members of Myotherapy Association Australia and specialise in delivering high-quality, clinical myotherapy services.

The Role of Myotherapists in Pain Relief

Myotherapists are healthcare professionals skilled in assessing and treating myofascial pain, dysfunction, and associated conditions. Our Noosa expert myotherapists understand the complexity of pain and utilise a wide range of remedial massage techniques, dry needling, cupping and trigger point therapy to provide effective treatment and sustainable relief.

Frequently asked questions

What is myotherapy and how does it differ from remedial massage?

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy that focuses on assessing and treating a range of disorders involving the musculoskeletal system. It differs from remedial massage in that myotherapists are trained to identify factors that may aggravate or contribute to pain and dysfunction, and they use a range of advanced treatment techniques such as dry needling, myofascial release, and joint mobilisation to address these issues.

How can myotherapy services help with soft tissue pain and tightness?

Myotherapy services are effective in addressing soft tissue pain and tightness by using specialised techniques such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and cupping to release tension and improve circulation in the affected areas. By addressing these issues, myotherapists can help remove discomfort and improve range of motion.

What can I expect during a myotherapy session?

During a myotherapy session, the myotherapist will work closely with you to assess your condition, identify key areas of concern, and develop a personalised treatment plan. This may involve a variety of techniques such as soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilisation, and dry needling, tailored to address your specific needs and improve your overall musculoskeletal health.

Can myotherapy help with non-specific musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction?

Yes, myotherapy can be effective in addressing non-specific musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. Myotherapists are trained to identify and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, including postural imbalances, trigger points, and soft tissue restrictions, to help avoid discomfort and improve overall function.

How does myotherapy specialise in treating a range of musculoskeletal conditions?

Myotherapy specialises in treating a range of musculoskeletal conditions through a comprehensive approach that includes detailed assessment, treatment planning, and targeted intervention. By utilising a combination of advanced soft tissue techniques, myotherapists can effectively address a variety of musculoskeletal issues and tailor their approach to each individual’s unique needs.

What are the benefits of including myotherapy as part of a treatment plan for musculoskeletal issues?

Including myotherapy in a treatment plan for musculoskeletal issues can bring numerous benefits, such as targeted relief from soft tissue pain, improved range of motion, enhanced muscular function, and overall improved quality of life. Myotherapy can also complement other forms of therapy, such as physiotherapy, to achieve the best results for the individual.

Can myotherapy help with chronic conditions such as plantar fasciitis or persistent aches and pains?

Yes, myotherapy can be beneficial for chronic conditions such as plantar fasciitis or persistent aches and pains. Myotherapists are skilled in using a range of techniques to help address symptoms and address underlying factors contributing to the chronic discomfort, offering relief and improved function over time.

How can myotherapy work collaboratively with other health professionals?

Myotherapy can work collaboratively with other health professionals, such as physiotherapists and remedial massage therapists, to provide a holistic approach to musculoskeletal care. By collaborating and sharing expertise, practitioners can offer integrated care that addresses a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal issues and promotes optimal recovery and well-being for their clients.

Come and meet Gary Javonena,
Noosa’s well loved Myotherapist

Remedial Massage therapist - Gary Javonena - Surf and Sport Myotherapy (683px)
I moved to Noosa in April 2019 with my wife and two kids. Prior to that, we lived in Torquay Victoria for 6 years.

There, I was working in a busy private practice with a bunch of legends who helped me become the person and practitioner I am today.

Also, surfing is my thing.

When I’m not working you can find me at the nearest beach riding waves and, when the surf is flat, I swop my board for a mountain bike and pedal hard in Wooroi, Nambour or wherever I can have fun!

Finally, you might also see me on a jetski dressed in yellow and red on the weekends, as part of the Noosa Lifeguards team.

I’ll tell you more when we meet!

I have decided to become a myotherapist, remedial massage therapist and dry needling practitioner because in my mind, there is nothing more rewarding than helping people to get back to doing what they love and feeling healthy and happy.

Come and see us, we’re here to help!
