Manual therapy is the hands-on movement of soft tissue and joint manipulation performed by clinicians to mobilize soft tissue and joints in order to relieve ligament/ tendon/ muscle aches and joint pain as well as to reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation and/or myofascial restriction. Our therapists specialize in a variety of manual techniques including but not limited to:
- Joint Mobilization,
- Soft Tissue Mobilization and
- Myofascial Release.
Manual therapy has been proven to be an important part of an overall conservative treatment plan for a variety of conditions including:
- Adhesive Capsulitis
- Shoulder Impingement
- Shoulder Stiffness/Limited Range of Motion
- Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)
- Golfers Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)
- Pinched Nerves
- Limited Joint Range of Motion
- Capsule Tightness
- Postsurgical Stiffness
- Much More
These techniques can be most helpful in the early stages of therapy when you need to regain your range of movement to become pain-free and are typically part of a complete treatment plan that is customized for your specific needs.
