Osteopathy is a “whole body” system of manual therapy which uses a range of techniques to manage musculo-skeletal disorders and other functional disorders of the body. This form of treatment was developed in America in the 1870s by Dr Andrew Taylor Still and has progressed in development to be widely scientifically validated and utilised around the world.
Myotherapy is the evidence based assessment, management and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions. Myotherapy targets the soft tissue of the body, namely muscle groups and connective tissue (myofascia), to help reduce pain, improve muscle function and increase joint range of motion. They also provide education on a range of postural complaints, functional movement and corrective exercise.
Dry needling is a process that involves inserting acupuncture needles into soft tissue around the body, including muscles, fascia, ligaments, and tendons. Also known as myofascial dry needling or biomedical acupuncture, dry needling can be effective in releasing chronically tight muscles and those in spasm. Dry needling is used solely to treat musculoskeletal conditions.
