Manual therapy involves specialized hands-on techniques that target areas of your body that are limited in motion and works to improve your movement and reduce your pain. Manual therapy is especially beneficial if you are experiencing spine problems, joint injuries, or other health conditions.
When performing soft tissue work, therapists apply pressure to the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles. This pressure can help relax muscles, increase circulation, break up scar tissue, and reduce or eliminate soft tissue inflammation. With manual therapy, clinicians also commonly mobilize and manipulate joints. Mobilization/manipulation techniques assist to reduce pain, correct joint mechanics and allow for early return to exercises and daily function.
Our expert physical therapists have years of specialized training to provide gentle, specific, hands-on therapies to address muscle and joint injuries. This includes massage (soft tissue mobilization), joint mobilization, and neuromuscular techniques to help you feel better.
