MyoMelt Therapy is a physical therapy technique developed by Daniel Shapiro, a Dutch trained Physical Therapist that specializes in manual therapy. Using this one of a kind approach, Daniel has helped people get rid of pain and get back to enjoying life quickly.
Daniel believes that everyone who wants to stay active, mobile, and retain their independence should have access to care that doesn’t require painkillers, injections, or surgery.
MyoMelt Therapy is a breakthrough technique that can provide painless relief to a variety of injuries. Patients have often asked if we are performing some “magic” because of the rapid decrease in pain and increase in mobility that they’ve experienced.
There is no “magic” or “wizardry” here, though. MyoMelt Therapy is based upon proven principles of “hands-on” manual therapy. By using MyoMelt Therapy, Daniel Shapiro can provide fast and effective relief to patients that have been unable to do the things they love. Sometimes this is due to an injury or ongoing long term pain that has caused you just to accept your new reality.
Who Can Provide MyoMelt Therapy?
Daniel Shapiro is the creator of MyoMelt Therapy so only he and other physical therapists trained in this technique that are part of Daniel Shapiro’s clinic, Project Physical Therapy, can provide MyoMelt Therapy.
Specific training in MyoMelt Therapy is necessary, and this type of physical therapy treatment is only available at Project Physical Therapy LLC.
How Does it Work?
MyoMelt Therapy is incorporated into your plan of care if you have a need for it. Typically, an initial appointment will be devoted to evaluating your injury, pain, and loss of movement to figure out exactly what’s going on. Then a physical therapist will create a plan of care for you to get pain free and, more importantly, back to the activities you’ve been missing out on. MyoMelt Therapy may be a part of that plan if your physical therapist determines that you’ll benefit from it.
MyoMelt Therapy is usually complementary to other physical therapy treatments. Patients benefit most when MyoMelt is combined with other therapies. Then, taken together, your recovery plan will control pain, keep it from coming back, strengthen the body, and increase activity/mobility levels.
