Manual Therapy interventions focus on hands-on, direct contact therapy. We use a manual hands-on approach to treatment.
Manual therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. This involves joint mobilizations, joint manipulation, soft tissue mobilization, or mobilization of neural tissue among others.
Manual therapy is used to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain; increasing range of motion (ROM); reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation; inducing relaxation; improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability; facilitating movement; and improving function.
