Myotherapy and Remedial Massage for Back Pain
Back pain can be frustrating, exhausting and unfortunately, extremely common. At some point over your lifetime, you are likely to suffer from aches and pains. Many people go for years without treatment out of fear of further injury.
Fortunately, that is where myotherapy and remedial massage comes in. Our team is consistently educating themselves on better and more effective treatment and techniques in massage for back pain.
Myotherapy vs Remedial Massage
There are many resemblances between myotherapy and remedial massage. Both Myotherapists and Massage therapists are effective at using manual therapy and soft tissue to help with pain, especially chronic back pain.
In myotherapy, massage is just one of the techniques therapists may use to relieve back pain. Although back pain can be complex, the technique that best suits you is dependent on your pain and issues. Ultimately, our goal is to relieve your tension and get you back to feeling yourself.
Some techniques we may use in your appointment to treat your back pain include:
Dry needling therapy
Trigger point therapy
Joint mobilisation and desensitisation
Nerve mobilisation and manipulation
Soft tissue therapy
Remedial massage is a focused treatment narrowing in on the area of most discomfort or pain. Therapists will generally use soft tissue therapy in your appointment. It is not uncommon that we may consider traditional remedial massage techniques in Myotherapy as well. For many clients, remedial massage for back pain is extremely effective and provides substantial relief on its own.
