Myotherapy is a specialised manual therapy that is aimed at treating and managing the soft tissues of the body. These soft tissues include muscular and connective tissues and their interactions with body systems. A myotherapist uses their supporting knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, biomechanics and pathology to understand the relationships between the myofascia (muscles and related connective tissues), and how the muscles and connective tissues relate to other systems of the body.
Myotherapists use their clinical examination skills to locate the sources of your symptoms to identify any dysfunctions. Where symptoms or dysfunctions exist treatment is aimed to normalise sensation and function. Where no symptoms exist, management of this area aims to optimise function, posture and movement resulting in the relief of pain and the return of normal sensation, posture and movement.
Myotherapy can be a first point of treatment with Myotherapits expert knowledge of the function and dysfunction of the body’s soft tissue. Myotherapist can also be valuable specialist team member within an interdependent multi-disciplinary team of health professionals.
Whilst a sore muscle can often cause pain after it’s been overworked, it does not always cause a long term problem especially if it is stretched and/or rested correctly. If the muscle or soft tissue is affected with pain and restriction is still present after a few days, weeks, months or often YEARS! Then it is advisable to consult a Myotherapist.
Nevertheless everyone is unique and Myotherapy is not effective for everyone. Shepparton Myotherapy have strong relationships with other disciplines and regularly refer to Naturopaths, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Podiatrists, Chinese Medicine Practitioners, Sports Medicine Doctors, Surgeons and many other therapists depending on the issue.
Common Conditions that respond well to Myotherapy:
- acute and chronic sports injuries
- lower and middle back pain
- neck pain and restriction
- headaches and migraines
- arthritic pain
- tennis and golfers elbow
- pre and post pregnancy muscular pain
- shoulder, hip, knee and ankle pain
just to name a few.
Techniques Myotherapists use include:
- trigger point therapy
- soft tissue stretching
- dry needling techniques
- therapeutic exercises
- therapeutic exercise programming
- proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF)

Pilates is a form of corrective exercise. Pilates uses principles that involve understanding the deep muscles that isolate the core trunk muscles in correct postural alignment while performing specific exercises.
During our Pilates classes you will learn:
- how to activate key ‘CORE’ muscles; like Transversus Abdominis (TA) and lower back muscles to achieve and maintain ‘neutral spine’
- understand how to differentiate between switching it “On minimally and Off”
Your Transversus Abdominis (TA) and lower back muscles ‘CORE’ act to create a corset like hold around your lower back to protect it from possible injury.
Once you start a program you will gain a general all-round body toning, improved postural awareness, more efficient muscle control and athletic performance, increased mobility of your spine and general flexibility.
Pilates can be very useful for clients with low back or neck pain, poor posture, sports injuries, arthritis, muscle weakness, reduced fitness levels, poor balance, and for pregnant or post-natal women.
