Myotherapists assess and treat muscle pain, injury and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility. Myotherapy can be useful preventatively or to rehabilitate injury or dysfunctions including tightness, tension, spasm, inefficient movement or poor posture. It can also be useful to help with the management of symptoms caused by arthritis and other joint problems, spinal injuries and the effects of stress from everyday life.

We are specialists in the assessment, treatment and management of muscular conditions that cause pain and affect movement.
