Manual Therapy

Through extensive training and practice, the therapist develops the sensitivity to evaluate and treat dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system through manual techniques.  With good manual skills, the therapist can locate joint and soft tissue restrictions causing pain and movement dysfunction.  By focusing treatment towards these areas we can restore improved quality and movement more quickly than a generalized approach.

Manual therapy techniques can be used to improve circulation and lymphatic flow, improve joint mobility and range of motion, eliminate muscular trigger points, reduce spasm, release fascial restrictions restoring movement and improving visceral function.  With improvements in local structures, exercises and stretches become more effective and good posture is easier to sustain.
