Manual therapy is a clinical treatment approach that uses specific hands-on techniques, including manipulation and mobilization, to diagnose and treat soft tissue and joint problems.
The use of manual therapy or hands-on treatments has been clinically proven to provide excellent benefits for a range of common musculoskeletal problems. When combined with the right advice and exercises, manual therapy can significantly improve the recovery time for many conditions, such as those affecting the lower back, neck and shoulder.
The clinically proven effects of manual therapy include; reducing pain; increasing range of motion (ROM); reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation; inducing relaxation; improving soft tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability; facilitating movement; and ultimately improving function.
At Physiostation, our physiotherapists have undergone post-graduate training in manual therapy techniques. If you feel manual therapy could be of benefit to you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
