Full time or Part time Study

Through a Bachelor of Health Science (Myotherapy) you will learn how to treat problematic musculoskeletal stresses, pain, and injuries.

Myotherapy is a branch of manual medicine that focuses on the treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. Myotherapy involves an extensive physical evaluation and an integrated therapeutic approach in the treatment of affected muscles, joints and nerves.

Students gain an in depth understanding of human biology, musculoskeletal anatomy and function. Through extensive practical classes and clinical experience, students learn to conduct testing and physical assessments and apply a variety of practical skills such as myofascial release, dry needling, joint mobilisation and trigger point therapy. Sports injury management, nutrition and exercise therapy and rehabilitation also add a broader scope to learning and career outcomes.

Myotherapists can practice independently or within a multi-disciplinary setting and are able to confidently treat a wide range of clients within their scope of practice without referral. Practitioners may choose to work with specialised groups such as athletes and sporting teams, pre and postnatal care, aged care, rehabilitation and palliative care. View the participating health funds for Myotherapists (as provided by HICAPS).

What to Expect

Health Science degrees are designed to train you to become a healthcare practitioner. To support learning, you'll attend practical classes where you are expected to practise interviewing techniques, assessment and treatment procedures on your fellow students under the supervision of qualified instructors. This is conducted with respect for privacy, cultural and religious differences. Prospective students are advised to consider these course requirements and to gauge your own comfort level with both learning to touch others diagnostically/therapeutically and with serving as a model for your classmates in this learning environment.

Classes are taught by experts who are highly trained in their fields and who bring their own clinical experience to help provide context to therapeutic subjects. As you progress through the course you will gain significant clinical experience at Endeavour’s on campus teaching clinics under supervision, developing and honing clinical skills in patient assessment and management.

Please be aware that some subjects in this course  have a 100% attendance requirement, and that these classes can only be missed for a very narrow number of reasons and must then be made up in order to fulfil the attendance requirement. This applies to all Clinical Practicum subjects, as well as other clinical subjects such as pre-clinical skills and clinic observation subjects. Students are responsible for knowing the attendance requirements for all subjects and for scheduling personal events to allow for adherence to the subject outline and the College’s Attendance Policy.

While some subjects require mid-term and final exams, assessments may also comprise quizzes, essays, practical/clinical skills demonstration and tutorial participation. Students enrolled in online subjects sit their final exam at Endeavour or, if they live at a distance, under approved external supervision.
