Adulthood brought a lot of changes to my body as I grew older. It is difficult to focus on my activities whenever I’m experiencing body pains. That is why I am very thankful I’ve tried Myotherapy. It brought a lot of improvements to my body and they are the following:
Reduce Body Pain
Body pain is so common particularly in an elderly like me. These body aches and pains can last for hours, even days. However, there are also body pains that last only for a short period of time. Myotherapy is a big help to me because it significantly provides huge relief from many body pains I experience on a daily basis.
Undergoing myotherapy for several months now has taught me that it helps reduce the pain by dealing with its mechanical origins like muscles, joints, and ligaments in my lower back.
Dealing with these body pains requires the right evaluation and treatments from the professionals. My therapists are the ones who specialize in dealing with the causes of pain in the musculoskeletal system. It is important to ask for their assessments because it would only worsen the pain if we do not divulge our health and medical status prior to undergoing myotherapy.
Injury Rehabilitation and Prevention
Being injured is common for everyone. I’ve had injuries before, caused by different things such as tripping over an object on the floor. But some are from faulty body mechanisms. It is very difficult being injured because it hinders my daily activities. Thankfully, Myotherapy is a great help to my rehabilitation and prevention.
At first, the therapist evaluated the cause of my injury, then established the findings. The myotherapist treated the injury. The therapist also prescribed relevant exercises that were good for my injury rehabilitation. Those exercises were outlined for my faster recovery.
This is when I realized that myotherapy is not just for rehabilitation but also for injury prevention. One of the best benefits from Myotherapy is its ability to improve mobility and efficiency of movement in our body.
The treatment helps with movements of joints and improvements of tissues through cupping, dry needling, and remedial massage.
Over time, poor posture is one of the problems I’ve struggled with since my younger years. Symptoms such as body aches and pains, rounded shoulders, and head that leans either forward or backward leads to poor posture. Fortunately, myotherapy helps release painful trigger points in the overworked muscles and extend muscles that are stuck in a compressed posture.
Another common problem that older adults like me usually face are headaches. Although headaches aren’t grave, they can still be burdensome to us. Experiencing this could make us lose our focus on what we do. That is why it is very important to treat this whenever it occurs. But we should know first what type of headache we have before getting the right treatment.
Myotherapy treats our headaches by integrating trigger point release of the sub occipital muscles, stretching works and cervical mobilization to mitigate symptoms within just a day. Therapists may also prescribe exercises that can be performed at home so that tension headaches can be treated outside the clinic.
Reduce Stress Levels
Every day is filled with uncertainties. There are a lot of things that add up to our stress. It is very important to lessen our stress levels for us to live a comfortable life. Using myotherapy treatment, our circulation is increased, and muscle tension is reduced. This helps in calming our nerves and relaxing our mind and body.
This therapy also stimulates our body to release hormones that help reduce both physical and emotional stress. These hormones are dopamine, endorphins, and serotonins.
We should not endure the pains we feel in our body. It is important to treat our aches as early as possible. Let’s live a pain-free life – try myotherapy.
