Manual Therapy

Our physical therapists have extensive training in manual therapy 
techniques. We use manual therapy as part of our comprehensive 
treatment plan, aware that manual therapy can restore pain-free 
motion more quickly and effectively than exercise alone. 
Manual therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that is 
delivered with a hands-on approach for orthopedic and

neuromuscular dysfunctions to restore normal joint mobility and

muscle tissue length or relaxation. We prefer this therapy since it is

found to reduce pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension and

joint dysfunction. Our treatment strategies include joint mobilization, myofascial release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, strain-counter strain, trigger point release, muscle energy technique, and kinesio taping techniques.

As part of our comprehensive treatment plan, we also educate 
patients in proper posture and body mechanics to function more 
efficiently and reduce strain.
