Delivering quality massage and physical therapy is my livelihood.
Musculoskeletal & Myotherapy – For those who want to:
- Reduce pain, for example, back pain, shoulder pain, muscle pain or tension
- Increase joint health, including joint stability and flexibility
- Increase nerve signal strength, and therefore increase available strength to your body.
Bones are the slaves to muscles and muscles are the slave to the nervous system. Although this statement seems logical to most people it’s often over looked or not used to its best effect when it comes to treating problems within physical therapy. What holds a vertebra or joint out of it’s best functional place? There is not always one simple answer but often there is some sort of imbalance in the myofascial tissues surrounding that joint. Using the nervous system to correct an imbalance is the most easiest (for both the client and practitioner) and quickest way to to achieve that correction.
A sustained muscle spasm or excessive tightness will pull a vertebra or joint from it’s optimal position and can have a variety of adverse effects, such as weakness, pain, excessive wear and tear, and other systemic problems. At Blue Mountains Myotherapy gentle, neural, orthopedic and myofascial techniques can be used to release sustained muscle spasm that is preventing the most optimal structural symmetry. This results in a whole variety of health benefits. Most conditions respond within 1-3 treatments.
Treatment can also involve dry needling which is very useful for resetting muscle tone and deactivating trigger points, especially in those muscles that lay deeper to other tissues and that are sometimes in hard to get to places.
