MANUAL THERAPY

Manual therapy is a hands-on treatment by clinicians to treat muscle aches, joint pain, and limited range of motion. It encompasses a variety of techniques, including manipulation and mobilization.
 

  • Manipulation: the application of a rapid force into a joint(s). Manipulation is often associated with an audible popping sound called cavitation.

  • Mobilization: a slower, more controlled process of articular and soft-tissue stretching intended to improve joint mobility.


Manual therapy has been proven to be an important part of an overall conservative treatment plan for a variety of conditions.  Manual therapy may be a good addition to your recovery and treatment plan.
