Manual therapy, also known as Manipulative therapy.
Our experienced manual therapists use a variety of techniques in their everyday routine to treat their patients’ pain.
These therapeutic techniques are physical, hands on treatments used by medical professionals within physical rehab, occupational health disciplines by physical, occupational, and Osteo therapists, Drs and athletic trainers to treat muscle and skeleton pain and disability. There’s an application of external force applied to the body with the goal to improve mobility in the restricted joints, connective tissues or skeletal muscle areas.
There are 3 notable forms of this treatment Manipulation, An introduction of rapid rotational, shear or distraction force, Mobilization, A slower, more controlled joint movement (articulation), and Massage, the repetitive, rubbing, stripping and kneading of the connective tissue covering the muscles (myofascial tissues) with the aim to help improve the fluid dynamics within the small narrow spaces of tissues (interstitial fluid).
We offer soft tissue therapy – a variety of Massage techniques, Myofascial release, joint Mobilizations and Manipulations.
