What is myoActivation?

myoActivation® is a methodology to assess and treat chronic pain conditions.  It combines release of muscles in sustained contraction, fascia in tension and relevant scars with the aim to resolve pain.  

Dr. Greg Siren developed the myoActivation® methodology over his career.  He and his colleagues have had 50,000+ encounters with over 8,000 patients using myoActivation®. 

myoActivation® uses specific trigger point and other needling techniques and protocols based on years of experience.

To ensure quality assurance, myoActivation® has been trademarked. myoActivation® training is now delivered through the Anatomic Medicine Foundation, a BC non-profit society.

A book chapter on the myoActivation® system of pain care is now available to you as a free download.

 The chapter is titled ‘myoActivation: a structured process for chronic pain resolution’ and is part of an online and print book, Pain Treatment, published by IntechOpen, London UK, and edited by Marco Cascella MD PhD of the Istituto Nazionale Tumori in Italy.
