Treating Pain With Myotherapy
The Somerset Myotherapy Group in Glen Iris VIC provides a unique type of physical therapy that addresses musculoskeletal-related pain and other conditions.
Called myotherapy, this approach involves the assessment, treatment and repair of muscle impairment that triggers pain and other physical ailments. A myotherapist takes a holistic view of the condition and evaluates everything that contributes to the problem, including the affected muscles, joints, nerves and internal organs.
Musculoskeletal issues stem from poor posture, biomechanics and injury. A myotherapist examines the physical and psychological aspects of an individual, as well as the nature of their profession, to come up with the most effective treatment plan.
Our certified myotherapist, Febie Cheng, uses a variety of therapy modalities, including:
- Massage Therapy (which includes sports and remedial techniques)
- Dry Needling
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Passive and Active Stretching
- Myofascial Release
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage

How Myotherapy Works
During your initial appointment, the practitioner will interview you about your medical history, current health issue and any medication that you may be taking. All the information you share will be kept confidential and used only by the therapist to establish the underlying causes of your symptoms.
After the Q & A portion, the myotherapist will conduct various tests with you to find out whether or not the symptoms you are presenting are myofascial in nature.
The results of the tests will determine the kind of treatment you need, or you may be referred to other healthcare specialists to get their prognosis and recommendations.
