In Annabelle’s initial Myotherapy appointment, Kate, her Myotherapist, went through Annabelle’s lifestyle and physical symptoms, as well as conducting a postural/movement assessment.
This information allowed Kate to take a specific direction in what areas needed to be treated, as well as a post-treatment management plan.
A Myotherapy postural assessment found:
• Limited movement through thoracic spine
• Lower back (lumbar) restriction/pain
• Annabelle was sleeping on the side, and experiencing difficulty breathing due to tension in the ribs
• Lumbar extension – spinal pain
• Tenderness through ribcage
The treatment in this initial Myotherapy visit included:
Deep Tissue Massage: through the muscles of erector spinae, quadratus lumborum, latissimus dorsi, trapezius, infraspinatus, glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, pectoralis minor/major, scalenes, splenius and sub occipitals.
Annabelle’s Myotherapy treatment also included Passive Joint Mobilisation: (hip flexion and rotation), plus diaphragm release work.
Following her Myotherapy treatment, Annabelle left the following feedback:
“Kate is amazing. She listened to what I explained, how I felt, and asked lots of questions relating to my body and life. She is friendly yet very professional. I finally feel after 6 months I’m on the road to recovery. I walked out actually feeling good and with a different mindset. I’m definitely returning.”
Annabelle left the clinic feeling like she could breathe again, and had significant pain relief through her
