Manual Therapy is a clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques to spinal and extremity joints to assess and treat injury and dysfunction. This can involve assisted stretches, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, mobilizations and manipulations. Mobilizations are gentle, rhythmic, passive movements and manipulations are skilled, passive, quick movements. Manual therapy is used for the purpose of modulating pain; increasing range of motion (ROM); reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation; inducing relaxation; improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability; facilitating movement; and improving function.
All of our therapists completed formal postgraduate manual therapy education, and have years of experience applying hands on treatment in safe and effective manner.
