This involves massage therapy that applies pressure to the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. This technique is designed to help relax muscles, improve circulation, break up scar tissue, and relieve discomfort in the soft tissues.
With manipulation techniques, a therapist applies precise movements of varying force, speed, and distances to pull, push, or twist joints and bones into position. This technique is used to loosen tight tissues around a joint, reducing discomfort and improving flexibility, movement, and alignment.
How Does Manual Therapy Work?
Our physical therapist certified in orthopedic manual therapy will lead the session with hands-on techniques rather than modalities. Manual physical therapists utilize their hands to apply pressure on muscular tissue and massage joints to reduce pain resulting from muscle spasms, tense joints, or tight muscles. When you visit our clinic, a manual physical therapist will assess your condition and create a treatment plan that includes a variety of techniques, such as stretching, range-of-motion exercises, massage, and joint manipulation.
Are Manual Therapy and Massage Services Right for You?
Manual therapy and massage services are an excellent alternative for those who prefer a more hands-on approach to treatment. If you are suffering from chronic pain, muscle tension, or joint stiffness and have not found relief through other forms of treatment, it may be time to consider reaching out to a manual physical therapist for help.
