Myotherapy is a targeted treatment for musculoskeletal pain, injury and dysfunction. Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascial dysfunction. Myofascia are the thin, fibrous sheets of tissue that surround and separate muscles.

The philosophy of Myotherapy is founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. You don’t need a referral from a doctor to make an appointment with a Myotherapist. After an initial assessment, your consultation may include, massage therapy, dry needling, joint mobilization, stretching and exercise rehabilitation.

Myotherapy is used to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions, for example:
  • ​Back pain

  • Neck and shoulder pain

  • Headache and migraine

  • Sports injuries

  • Rotator cuff problems

  • Tennis elbow

  • Achilles tendinopathy 

  • Jaw dysfunction

  • Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain presentations

What to expect at your first Myotherapy appointment

For your first appointment, bring any medical test results (such as x-ray films) that relate to your condition. The myotherapist will ask questions about your symptoms and your medical history, including prior illness and surgery.


The myotherapist will examine and treat the affected joints, muscles and any associated myofascial pain patterns. The myotherapist may refer you to other healthcare professionals for further diagnosis or treatment, depending on your condition.
