Corrective Exercises
 
Meniscal Cartilage Tear

Passive knee extension: Do this exercise if you are unable to extend your knee fully. While lying on your back, place a rolled-up towel under the heel of your injured leg so the heel is about 6 inches off the ground. Relax your leg muscles and let gravity slowly straighten your knee. Try to hold this position for 2 minutes. Repeat 3 times. You may feel some discomfort while doing this exercise. Do the exercise several times a day.
This exercise can also be done while sitting in a chair with your heel on another chair or stool.
 
Heel slide: Sit on a firm surface with your legs straight in front of you. Slowly slide the heel of the foot on your injured side toward your buttock by pulling your knee toward your chest as you slide the heel. Return to the starting position. Do 2 sets of 15.

Standing calf stretch: Stand facing a wall with your hands on the wall at about eye level. Keep your injured leg back with your heel on the floor. Keep the other leg forward with the knee bent. Turn your back foot slightly inward (as if you were pigeon-toed). Slowly lean into the wall until you feel a stretch in the back of your calf. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Return to the starting position. Repeat 3 times. Do this exercise several times each day.

Myotherapy Tools
Myotherapists offer a wide range of treatment options, depending on the assessment of your injury. Myofascial techniques are classified as passive (you remain completely relaxed while the therapist performs a treatment) and active (you may be asked to provide resistance). Myotherapists employ a variety of treatments, depending upon their assessment of your condition. Some of these include: 
Trigger Point Therapy
Also known as Neuromuscular therapy, it  works by relaxing the muscle in order to release stored lactic acid and encourage blood and oxygen circulation to the muscle to avoid the production of more lactic acid. The therapeutic pressure and massage typically produces initial soreness and "good pain" in muscle tissue.
Myofascial Cupping
Dry Needling
It's a modified version of the ancient Eastern style cupping which differs by specifically targeting the Musculo-Skeletal system rather than the meridian systems used by traditional Chinese practitioners

MDN is a scientifically proven form of treatment for chronic pain and chronic muscular tightness.  IT IS NOT Acupuncture, however, acupuncture needles are inserted into painful muscle spasms called myofascial trigger points.  
 
Electro Muscle Stimulation Needling
Soft/Deep Tissue Massage
Pre or post Needling treatment protocol that focuses on connective tissue, and the goal is to produce changes in movement and posture. 
​Stimulates your nerves via an electrical current through your skin which interferes with the transmission of pain signals, by blocking the neural “gate” through which the pain travels.
Joint Mobilisation
It's a manual therapy intervention, a type of passive movement of a skeletal joint.

° Myofascial Release (MFR) 

A soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This alternative medicine therapy aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles.    

° Cryo and Heat Therapy

Heat therapy opens blood vessels, which increases blood flow, cuts down pain and relaxes muscles, while Cryo therapy slows down the blood flow to an injury, which cuts down the swelling and pain.

° PNF Stretching
(Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) 

Are stretching techniques used to increase range of motion with the ultimate goal being to optimize motor performance and rehabilitation.

° Muscle Energy Technique (MET) 

It's a manual therapy that uses the gentle muscle contractions of the client to relax and lengthen muscles and normalize joint motion

° Kinesio Taping

° Corrective Exercises

Kinesiology tape is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows kinesio tape to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of your movement.  The benefits are-improved lymphatic flow reduces swelling which decreases the activation of the pain receptors providing immediate pain relief.
Rehabilitative exercise and corrective actions are an imperative part of any myotherapy treatment. It enables the client to take responsibility for their own health, acts to permanently change dysfunctional patterns, and is a vital injury prevention mechanism.
