MANUAL AND MANIPULATIVE THERAPY

WHAT IS MANUAL THERAPY?

Manual therapy is a hands-on approach to treat restrictions in the body to improve range of motion, decrease pain and improve function.  A treatment may include soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilizations or manipulations, myofascial release, neural mobilizations or instrument assisted soft tissue work. Manual therapy is the cornerstone of any physiotherapy treatment, and a large part of our treatment time will be spent here. You will then be sent home with some exercises to maintain any progress we made in the clinic!
