Myotherapy & dry needling  


If you are looking for Myotherapy in Brighton, you've come to the right place. Our myotherapists are here to help you.

Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy that focuses on the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated pathologies. The term myotherapy was originally created by Bonnie Prudden to describe a specific type of trigger point therapy which she developed in the 1970s based on the earlier work of Travell and Simons who researched the cause and treatment of pain arising from myofascial trigger points. 

Dry needling is a method used in myotherapy to effectively and efficiently resolve trigger points related to chronic or acute pain and dysfunction. Dry needling will act to enhance your healing and provide a boost to your performance and recovery.

Injuries, stress, physical conditions, exercise, disability, as well as lifestyle and postural factors, are all potentially associated with the cause of painful trigger points. Myotherapy helps to release active trigger points, whilst restoring and maintaining healthy soft tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

Myotherapy and the role of trigger points


Effective treatment for injuries, pain & headaches

Trigger points can form in your muscles if you have experienced an injury, or have poor posture, or have just been working your body very hard. Trigger points can cause pain in localised and referred areas around your body.  Referred pain is pain felt in an area other than the actual site of the pain origin due to an interconnected network of sensory nerves. For example, an injury to your lower back may give you pain in your legs. An injury of your shoulder may give you pain in your arms and fingers. Headaches, blurry vision, dizziness, poor sleep and fatigue, can all be caused by trigger points and physiological dysfunction around the neck, shoulder and head regions. There are many other factors and causes of such symptoms as well. 

Vascular and neural symptoms such as numbness and tingling sensations, can also be associated with active trigger points that may be inhibiting the optimal function of blood vessels and nerves around your body. Such symptoms are often bi-products of other associated pathologies and conditions, however, the role of active trigger points in relation to your symptoms should never be overlooked. This is especially the case with many people suffering from chronic pain and discomfort.

If you are interested in healing your injury, myotherapy may be the perfect treatment route for you. Through the use of dry needling, cupping, deep tissue massage, myofascial release techniques, joint mobilisation, and trigger point therapy, our myotherapists are able to assess, treat and assist in the rehabilitation of your injury or condition. At Good Health Group Clinic, we also work in conjunction with your GP and other allied health practitioners to ensure that all aspects of your health and recovery are catered for.
 
Myotherapists also use stretching, nutritional advice, corrective exercise, postural advice and education, heat and cold therapy, taping, exercise prescription, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to help you fully regain your range of movement and reduce your pain. 

Our myotherapists in Brighton can help keep you in optimal shape for your sporting endeavors and day-to-day activities. Myotherapy and dry needling treatment can speed up your recovery, reduce excessive time-off activities, and keep you performing at your best!
