The key intension of chiropractic care is to detect and correct vertebral subluxations, in order to restore the healthy function of the spine and nervous system. This is what enables the body to function at its optimal potential.
All these years later research is finding a vertebral subluxation is a bore functioning or moving in an abnormal way. This abnormal movement interferes with the way spinal information is sent to the brain and through the central nervous system.
This then creates a problem with the way the brain and central nervous system process and send information.
Myotherapy literally means muscle therapy. Most think that this is a suitable explanation, however it still doesn’t tell you exactly what we do.
A myotherapists job is to assess and treat muscular conditions which cause pain and prevent people going about their normal activities. To achieve this we feel or palpate the affected area, observe how the patient uses the area, test the area for movement, strength etc, and question the patient on the painful area.
Although this process takes around 15-20 minutes it is necessary for the safety of the patient.
Your remedial massage therapist will assess where you need treatment and what may be causing your pain.
They’ll perform some tests to see exactly which muscles are giving you trouble and will tailor a treatment plan to suit.
The treatment itself may involve deep tissue work for short periods of time, but the results are definitely worth it!
Conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches, sports injuries and many more can be eased with a remedial treatment.
