What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is the evidence based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions. Our team of Myotherapists target 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; helping to provide sustained relief.
The most common complaints people see a Myotherapist for are:
- Stiff Neck
- Chronic Back Pain
- Knee & Hip Joint Pain
- Shoulder Dysfunction including Impingement Syndrome & Rotator Cuff Injury
- Nerve Tension including Sciatica
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Sports Injuries
- Workplace or Overuse Injury

Depending on your preferences these may include Dry Needling, Remedial Massage, Myofascial Release, and Cupping (among others).
Dan is an expert on the biomechanics of the body as a holistic ‘machine’, ensuring your symptoms are treated in relation to all your other moving parts and not merely treated in isolation.

The practice is increasingly seeking to communicate with our patients via secure electronic means. This would include email / SMS health reminders, on-line appointment bookings, SMS appointment reminders and in the future patient uploading basic health information. To do this we need to ensure we have your email address, mobile phone number and of course your consent.
New Patients including women, men and children are welcome at Premier Health Partners. Consultations are by appointment only. Appointments can be booked via telephone (03) 9329 7077, or via our website. In cases of an urgent appointment, please call and we will assist where possible.
If you are unable to attend for a scheduled appointment, please contact us to cancel or change your appointment time. As a courtesy we send out appointment reminders to the mobile number on file and request a minimum of 24 hours notice if you are unable to attend.
We have high demand for appointments and many patients miss out on seeing the doctor of their choice or even obtaining an appointment at all. Late cancellation or failing to attend does not allow the appointment to be offered to someone else seeking treatment.
A fee may be charged for failure to attend or cancellation at short notice, less than 24 hours on the day (NB: this fee does not attract a Medicare rebate).
We respect the right of the patient and ensure all complaints are dealt with in a timely manner.
This practice acknowledges that patient complaints are an important source of customer feedback.
Under the Health Services Act 1987 people with complaints should try to resolve them directly with the health service provider.
If a satisfactory outcome is not achieved then complaint can be directed to the Health Services Commissioner for action by calling 03 8601 5200.
