Manual therapy is a hands-on treatment by clinicians to treat muscle aches, joint pain, and limited range of motion. It utilizes a variety of techniques including soft tissue mobilization of muscles, specific joint mobilization, and joint manipulation. The expected results may include:

  • Managing pain
  • Increasing range of motion
  • Reducing soft tissue tension
  • Eliminating joint inflammation
  • Increasing joint mobility
  • Improving joint stability
  • Promoting proper recruitment of muscle groups
  • Restoring normal movement patterns

We employ a range of manual therapy techniques including:

  • Joint mobilization
  • Passive range of motion
  • Flexibility
  • Soft tissue mobilization
  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point release
  • Spinal Manipulation
