Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy is a pain management system created by Erik Dalton PhD which uses simple assessment, realignment and retraining strategies to deal with painful muscular and skeletal strain patterns caused from tension, trauma and poor posture in the body.
A session begins with an efficient five minute structural evaluation and assessment, as well as various range of movement checks tailored and specific to each individual case. By addressing the fundamental issues in the muscle, fascia and skeletal systems I manipulate tight muscles and fascia to help restore symmetry and balance.
A session of myoskeletal alignment therapy will integrate assisted stretching, deep tissue massage, joint mobilisation and manipulation as required. This helps greatly reduce pain, improve biomechanics and movement patterns plus enhances overall athletic performance.
It can be extremely beneficial for:
• Limited mobility • Repetitive strain injury • Poor posture • Back pain • Neck pain
• Shoulder pain • Hip pain • Foot/ankle pain • Muscle stiffness and tension
• Migraine/tension headaches • Injury rehabilitation • Stress reduction.
The body’s bones (the skeletal system), muscles (muscular system), cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together comprise the musculoskeletal system. Most importantly, the system provides form, support, stability, and movement to the body.
