An initial myotherapy consultation includes a medical & lifestyle questionnaire and physical assessment to identify the cause of your pain or dysfunction. The physical assessment may include a postural assessment, range of movement testing and special orthopedic testing.
A treatment plan will be devised from the above. Treatment is mostly hands-on and may include deep tissue and remedial massage; dry needling, corrective exercises and stretches along with an ongoing treatment plan where required. Much of the treatment can take place through clothing if preferred.
The standard follow-up consultation is approx 40-45min. During this consultation, your myotherapist will conduct a brief re-assessment of your condition prior to treatment. The treatment will be followed by possible modification of your prescribed exercises.
An extended consultation is approx 50-60min and is upon request by your myotherapist, OR If you have multiple or chronic issues. It may also be required if you have not been to the clinic for awhile and are presenting with a new condition since your last visit.
A short consultation consists of a brief assessment of your condition and a progression to your treatment. Short consultations are ideally part of an on-going treatment plan.
