Musculoskeletal / MSK Therapy

MSK Therapy Brisbane

The Brisbane Musculoskeletal Therapy clinic in (Morningside) specialises in Musculoskeletal and Myofascial Therapies to improve performance and reduce pain. Soft tissue performance is equally relevant to recovering from injuries and when treating Chronic Pain conditions. Many persistent pain conditions, such as Myofascial Pain Syndrome, require a comprehensive and holistic approach to treatment. At TotalMSK, Terry works very differently from many Remedial Massage and Myotherapists in Brisbane. Besides being highly qualified and experienced in using a range of soft tissue therapies to benefit clients, he also has experience with elite-level performance. Terry spent nearly eight years serving in elite British forces, and that experience taught him a huge amount physically and psychologically about human performance. Pushing the body to the absolute limits can also result in injuries, and Terry has had his fair share of injuries, yet he is just as active today as he has always been and still enjoys distance running. He ran the 2024 Bridge to Brisbane with a colleague and fellow member of Buddy Up Australia and more recently the RunArmy 10km in Brisbane. Terry's personal high-performance experiences, injuries, subsequent training and over sixteen years of experience treating have shaped how he works and for the benefit of the patients he sees. As a veteran, he understands the sacrifices serving personnel and first responders make during and after service. Hence, in recognition of such service, those eligible are entitled to a worthwhile treatment discount.

There are many reasons that one may experience MSK or myofascial pain. Besides the physical nature of pain, there is also a psychological aspect. The pain usually affects our ability to move and do the things we enjoy or basic daily activities. The physical nature of pain and its effect on our daily lives can impact our mental health, notably in chronic pain cases. Pain is also a "stressor", and anything that triggers the human stress response can affect all bodily systems (see the articles on Stress, Wellbeing and the Workplace). Even though our body is very good at finding ways to move that avoid pain, there are limits on how much the body can adapt. Equally, adaptations mean that structures are not moving as they should, leading to other problems much later (see the article on Soft Tissue Adaptation to activity and injury for more detail). Hence, an injury may appear to have healed and is no longer painful, yet tissues may not be working as normal. Thus, this is one reason why some active people can seem troubled with lots of injuries. Hence, we aim to treat the pain and restore "normal" functional movement, or as near as is possible given the situation. Basic Massage is just one form of Soft Tissue Therapy, with other and more advanced treatment approaches including myofascial release techniques and even Myofascial Dry Needling. Knowing when and which type of method to use when treating and in any given situation comes with experience.
