Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a skilled intervention utilizing hands-on techniques performed by our clinicians to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal impairments. Depending on our clinicians through examination and evaluation, manual therapy techniques may be selected and implemented to reduce pain, increase range of motion, decrease inflammation and swelling, decrease myofascial restrictions, and/or increase tissue extensibility. In conjunction with other skilled treatment interventions within an individualized and client-centered treatment plan, manual therapy facilitates your body’s healing process, enhances or maintains physical performance, and improves overall functional mobility. 

Various manual techniques include: 

  • Massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Passive Range of Motion (PROM)
  • Active Assistive Range of Motion (AAROM)
  • Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization
  • Joint mobilization/manipulation
  • Stretching
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
  • Scar massage
  • Strain-counter-strain
