What Is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy means treatment to muscles, which was created and developed by fitness expert Bonnie Prudden in 1976. Her research led her develop a two-part technique to relieve pain of muscular origin and restore muscle function. First, gentle pressure is applied in patterns to release trigger points. Second, as the muscles relax they are carefully stretched and therapeutic corrective exercises are given to regain strength, flexibility and range of motion.

Myotherapy is a non-invasive therapy. There are no needles, drugs, manipulations or electronic devices used. Myotherapist take a detailed health history and look for the root cause of the pain. Most medications just deal with treating symptoms. Myotherapy can used exclusively or in conjunction with other health professionals. Together, Myotherapy and Corrective Movement Exercises work quickly and reliably.
