Myotherapy, derived from the Greek prefix ‘myo-’ meaning ‘muscle’, is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction that can occur as a result of trauma, overload, postural imbalance or misuse of muscles arising from occupation, sporting or recreational activities.
