PACE Osteopathy will provide accurate diagnosis, treatment and management of pain and dysfunction anywhere in the body. Using manual therapy techniques as well as dry needling and ultrasound, our aim is to restore optimal function as well as offering management goals for long term reduction of persisting symptoms. We use and recommend a fabulous array of adjunct therapies and allied health professionals including local GPs, Exercise Physiologists, Sports Physicians, Myotherapists, Podiatrists, and yoga and pilates instructors. If we cannot help you we will endeavour to provide associations that can.

Osteopathic treatment, whilst renowned for its effects on reducing pain can also alleviate many other symptoms that may be overlooked. Fatigue, recurrent colds illness, intestinal discomfort, digestive disturbances, severe period pain, baby colic and asthma can all be aided by treatment. If you are experiencing any of these conditions in association with musculoskeletal pain then they may well be linked.

Myotherapy

(Only Available at PACE Frankston)

What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascia dysfunction. Myofascia are the thin, fibrous sheets of tissue that surround and separate muscles. Ligaments and tendons are comprised of bundled myofascia.
The philosophy of myotherapy is founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.

Symptoms of soft tissue pain

Pain that is caused by muscle tissue or muscle fascia (myofascia) is called myofascial pain. Symptoms can include deep and constant aching, muscle tightness, sore spots in the muscle (myofascial trigger points), reduced joint mobility, stiff joints, numbness, recurrent tingling, prickling or ‘pins and needles’ sensation and unexplained tiredness.

What do Myotherapists Treat?

Myotherapists provide evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for a wide range of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions such as back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, sports injuries, occupational injuries, jaw pain and clicking, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain presentations.

You don’t need to be in pain to visit a Myotherapist. Once symptoms have settled treatment may focus on restoring optimal activity (rehabilitation), reducing the likelihood of further injury and keeping you moving and performing at your best. 

Myotherapy techniques

Treatment depends on the diagnosis. Myotherapy uses a range of techniques including:

  • massage, including sports and remedial techniques

  • gently moving the patient’s affected body part through its range of motion (passive stretching)

  • hot or cold therapy

  • transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy

  • trigger point therapy (acupressure)

  • myofascial dry needling
