Schedule a Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy® Treatment in Tucson

Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy® (service to muscle) is a technique used to erase muscle pain and restore muscle function. No needles, drugs or machines are used.

Trigger Points

A Trigger Point is a highly irritable spot in a muscle. Trigger points are laid down in muscles all through life. A fall, blow, knock, strain, sprain, or repetitive movement, for example, can insult the muscles.

Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy® has helped people from conductor composer Leonard Bernstein to ball player Mark McGwire.

Spasm-Pain-Spasm Cycle

A trigger point lies quiet in a muscle until the physical and emotional climate is right, and then it “fires.” Its firing throws the muscle into spasm. This causes pain. The body’s autonomic nervous system’s answer is to send more spasm which causes more pain to the damaged area. We now have the Spasm-Pain-Spasm Cycle: for instance, chronic back pain, headaches and knee pain.

When is Myotherapy is Effective?

Myotherapy is effective whenever the pain is muscle related. Most chronic pain is caused by muscle spasm. If you have chronic muscle pain, your medical tests are negative and your doctor has ruled out pathology or injury needing medical attention, there is a 95% chance that Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy® will work to erase your muscle pain.

Devine Starlaryl, MD “Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain,” Dharma Singh Khalsa, MD “The Pain Cure” and Jesse Stoff, MD, “Chronic Fatigue: The Hidden Epidemic” all acknowledge the efficacy of Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy® in their books.

During a Myotherapy treatment the Spasm-Pain-Spasm Cycle is broken.

  • Key posture muscles are checked for weakness and trigger points.
  • Pressure is applied to trigger points for five to seven seconds. This encourages the muscle to relax and the pain to lessen.
  • Passive exercise is used to stretch and retrain the newly relaxed muscle. This encourages the muscles to remain pain-free.
  • Patient is taught Self-Help Myotherapy techniques to be used between treatments. This usually reduces the number of treatments needed. The average number of treatments is three to seven.
  • A program of home exercise is initiated. These are designed to take only a few minutes at a time and when done properly and regularly are the key to long term pain relief.

Following a Myotherapy Treatment

Patients usually record less pain, better range of motion, a feeling of looseness or lightness and improved sleep patterns.
