Is Myotherapy right for me? A helpful questionnaire to determine your suitability.

We have recently been involved in a health week with a local business and besides the question of “What is Myotherapy?” the second most popular question was “How do I tell if Myotherapy is right for me?” so today I’m going to provide you with a questionnaire to help you determine if Myotherapy might be of benefit.

Question One – Pain

If you answer yes to one or more of the following Myotherapy may be right for you:

a) Do you experience pain that you or your doctor thinks is from your musculoskeletal system?

b) Have you recently injured yourself at work, from a recreational activity or overdoing a activity such as spring cleaning or tidying up the garden?

c) Has another health professional recommended you get some soft tissue work done for your pain or dysfunction?

d) Have you had surgery which has left you with pain from scar tissue or from lack of mobility during the recovery time?

e) Do you have an ongoing pain complaint that other practitioners have not been able to relieve? Or it gets better for a little while but then comes back?

Question Two – Dysfunction

If you answer yes to one or more of the following Myotherapy may be right for you:

a) Do you believe you have bad posture either while standing, sitting or during certain activities?

b) Has another health professional told you that you need to work on your posture?

c) When you do stretches does one side feel tighter or more uneasy than the other?

d) Have you been told you have a leg length difference, a scoliosis, an increased kyphosis or other bony abnormality?

e) When you move your body do you sometimes feel as though you can’t move as well to one side such as turning your head or your body?

Question Three – Stress

If you answer yes to one or more of the following Myotherapy may be right for you:

a) Do you ever experience tension in your shoulders or back when you are stressed?

b) Do you get headaches or migraines that you or your doctor believe could be related to stress?

c) Do you have a stressful or high pressured job that you think one day might catch up to you?
