What to expect from your local Frankston Myotherapist

  

First Consultation (Initial Consultation)


For your first appointment, please bring along any medical related reports (XRAYS/ MRI/ CT scan) that relates to your condition. Our myotherapist will ask questions about your symptoms. You will be asked relevant questions about your medical history, including prior illness and surgery. This information is kept in strictest confidence and is used by the therapist to help pinpoint the cause of your symptoms.

Our myotherapist will perform a physical examination of the affected joint(s) and associated muscles. This initial examination is thorough and helps the myotherapist to find out where the symptoms are coming form. Depending on your medical condition, the myotherapist may refer you to another healthcare professional for further diagnosis or treatment.

 

Initial consultations are generally 45 minutes.

 


  
 

Regular Myotherapy Visits

 

Our Myotherapist will work with you to identify factors that may be making your condition worse (such as poor posture or overtraining) and help you find ways to avoid or reduce these aggravating factors. Subsequent conultations are generally 30-45 minutes and include a brief check on your health and progress since the last consultation, as well as some clinical assessment, followed by treatment.

 

 

  

How is Myotherapy differerent from Physiotherapy

 

Myotherapy is a form of manual medicine, like physiotherapy, osteopathy and exercise physiology, which treats pain and limitation arising from injury, disability or lifestyle factors. Myotherapists focus primarily on the connective tissue (eg fascia,muscles and ligaments). Our Myotherapist in Frankston provides hands on treatment targetted at pain relief caused by muscles and joints. At least 75% of the appointment is dedicated to treatment.
