Manual therapy is a type of physical therapy that uses hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions. Our highly skilled and trained therapists use a variety of manual therapy techniques to help improve range of motion, reduce pain, and promote healing, including:
- Joint mobilization and manipulation: These techniques involve gentle movement of the joints to improve the range of motion and reduce pain.
- Soft tissue mobilization: This technique involves massaging and manipulating the muscles, tendons, and ligaments to reduce pain and improve mobility.
- Myofascial release: This technique involves applying pressure to the connective tissue surrounding the muscles to reduce pain and improve flexibility.
In addition to manual therapy, we offer a range of other physical therapy and wellness services, including Dry Needling, Exercise Therapy, Pelvic Floor Therapy, Kinotek, Normatec, and Taping.
