MANUAL THERAPY

How We Achieve A Better Diagnosis with Less Discomfort

 

What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is a method of physical therapy that involves the therapist feeling exactly how your body reacts to specific movements and exercises. A lot of pain and discomfort comes from a lack of mobility or a small range of motion. Through simple movements and exercises, we’re able to get your body used to these motions again, reducing or completely removing your pain.

Manual therapy includes a detailed biomechanical assessment. This means that your therapist will watch and feel how you move in order to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. This leads to faster recovery times and improved outcomes.
