McTimoney Musculoskeletal Therapy in Brisbane
MSTPLUS operates a small Musculoskeletal Therapy (MST) clinic, which has just moved to a new location in Kenmore, Brisbane. The practice specializes in use of a combination of advanced soft tissue techniques, remedial massage and McTimoney manipulative techniques to treat Musculoskeletal conditions.
The principal practitioner (Terry) has built up a wealth of knowledge and experience in treating soft tissue injuries since 2005. He has also undertaken further advanced remedial massage training to enhance his knowledge of treating myofascial aliments. Many of these additional soft tissue techniques have their origins in Osteopathy. The aditional training is frequently used in conjunction with other treatment modalities including remedial massage, sports massage and the McTimoney therapy. Some people may refer to Terry’s combination of training and his methods of treatment as Myopractic. There may actually be some similarities, as myopractic utilizes skills and techniques from a variety of therapies including Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Bowen therapy and Chinese medicine. The term Myopractic is derived from latin and means "Muscle Practice", though this definition is too narrow and does not adequately describe the skills, experience training and knowledge used in a typical treatment session with Terry. However, Terry does utilize skills and techniques from a variety of different therapies to effectively treat presenting conditions.
Conditions commonly treated by Terry include:-
- Musculoskeletal pain (neck, back, shoulders, arms, hands, hips, knees, feet, ribs).
- Joint discomfort, SIJ syndrome, stiffness or reduced range of motion.
- Migraine or tension headaches.
- Neurological conditions, (sciatica, thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome).
- Inflammatory conditions (tennis or golfers elbow, plantar fasciitis).
- Sport injuries.
- Overuse injuries.
- Muscle strains or ligament sprains.

Musculoskeletal Therapy & MSTPLUS
The name of the business is derived in part from the commonly used abbreviation for MusculoSkeletal Therapy (MST). The PLUS stems from the founder and his additional training above and beyond what is covered in a normal musculoskeletal course. The additional training includes a five year Integrated Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) and advanced remedial therapy techniques. The founder of the practice is still currently registered as a UK Chiropractor, however, importantly he is not an Australian registered Chiropractor and as such is prevented by law from calling himself a chiropractor, professing to be one, or working as one. However, he can still use his additional knowledge and training in McTimoney osseous manipulation, which enables him to safely work beyond the standard scope of practice of a musculoskeletal therapist.
