Bachelor of Health Science (Clinical Myotherapy)

 

If you’ve ever suffered from musculoskeletal pain, you’ll understand just how debilitating it can be. As a qualified Clinical Myotherapist, you’ll have the amazing opportunity to make a real difference to those who suffer from this condition. It’s the only degree of its type in Australia, so get ready for a fantastic head start in this rewarding, specialist career.

What is Clinical Myotherapy?

Clinical Myotherapy is a system of health care focusing on the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain. Divided into three categories, this can be myofascial pain arising from trauma or muscle contracture; neuropathic pain deriving from the nervous system, or articular pain that originates from the joints.
This nationally recognised and government accredited degree is the only one of its type in Australia, teaching methods of physical and orthopaedic assessment similar to those of physiotherapy and osteopathy.
Clinical Myotherapists can make a massive difference, treating various issues such as sporting and occupational injuries, stiffness and sore body, chronic overuse syndromes, symptoms associated with arthritis, back pain, neck pain, stress and tension, pregnancy and more.

What you’ll learn

This three year degree is approved by TEQSA (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency), the national Australian accreditation body. Taught by expert practitioners, you’ll gain thorough theoretical knowledge in the biomedical and clinical sciences and learn about the advancement of the rehabilitation process through techniques such as:

• manual therapies

• myofascial dry-needling

• prescriptive exercises

• electrical stimulation

• joint mobilisation and

• pain management

Everyone goes to work!

Under the guidance of our expert practitioners, we take you out of the classroom and into our THINK Wellbeing Centre where you’ll practice and finesse your skills with real patients.
