Myoreflex Therapy for Muscle Pain


Muscle pain is a highly common affliction, especially if you are physically active. In fact, muscle pain may become such an integral part of your active lifestyle that you simply ignore it, brushing it off as a natural consequence of staying in shape. However, chronic and debilitating muscle pain is not normal, nor should it be ignored.

When your body is in motion, your muscles do not act independently of one another, but rather work as a kinetic chain to imbalanced muscle tension in your opposing shoulder.

Muscle pain is nothing more than a cognitive perception conveyed from your peripheral nervous system to initiate and control movement.

Myoreflex therapy acknowledges the intricate interrelationship between your muscles and nervous system, and takes a holistic approach to treating pain.

How Myoreflex Therapy Works

Myoreflex Therapy focuses on muscle insertions, the junctions where the ends of muscles attach via tendons to bones. When function is impeded by overuse or injury, muscle pain is triggered, sometimes far from the site of dysfunction.

Myoreflex therapy does not treat isolated muscles or points of pain, but instead encompasses an entire muscular network. To function properly, muscle networks rely on a harmonious balance of muscle tension. This balance can be disrupted by:

  • postural misalignment
  • biomechanical stress
  • lack of physical activity
  • psychological stress

When a muscular imbalance develops, pain can result in different areas of your body.

Myoreflex therapy stimulates specific pressure points at the muscle-tendon interface, transmitting a signal to the relief of pain in soft tissue structures.

Who Can Benefit from Myoreflex Therapy?

Myoreflex therapy is effective for treating a broad range of physical and psychological diseases and disorders. Common conditions often treated by myoreflex therapy include:

  • chronic muscle pain
  • lumbar disc pain
  • knee dysfunction
  • fibromyalgia
  • whiplash
  • osteoarthritis
  • scoliosis
  • hypertension
  • heart arrhythmias
  • asthma
  • headaches
  • jaw pain
  • emotional stress
  • burnout

Myoreflex therapy is painless and non-invasive, yet pain is often alleviated after the very  first treatment. Additional treatments reinforce functional neuromuscular patterns, ensuring that pain does not return.
