"Myotherapy is the evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions" . In common with physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors, myotherapists may use massage in their treatments, when warranted, but they also call upon a wide range of other evidence-based treatment approaches and skill-sets which in addition to manual therapy, dry needling, and thermo and electro-therapeutic techniques may include; exercise prescription and/or education about pain management, load management, activity modification and/or lifestyle modification. . Like the aforementioned allied health professions, myotherapy has it's own separate qualifications, specifically the BHSc (Clinical Myotherapy), BHSc (Myotherapy) and AdvDip (Myotherapy), which qualify practitioners to undertake evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions. .
