Manual Therapy is therapy performed by the hands of our therapist with the goals of relaxing the patient, reducing pain, and providing more flexibility. It includes:
- Massaging muscles and the body’s soft tissues to relax the patient, improve circulation and relieve pain.
- Joint Mobilization uses slow movements to help loosen tight joint tissues and increase flexibility.
- Passive stretching uses slow movements to help break up and reduce scar tissue to help improve range of motion and decrease pain.
