A Hands-On Approach
Manual therapy is a term used to describe a specialized form of hands-on treatment used by physiotherapists to treat muscular and skeletal aches and pain. Manual therapy focuses on reducing and eliminating pain by restoring the body's natural movements using external forces and guides. Manual therapy primarily involves various forms of mobilizations and manipulations of soft tissues (such as ligaments, tendons, and muscles) as well as joints, such as the spine, shoulder, knee, hip, ankle, etc.
Manual therapy can be used to reduce pain and restore function, as well as improve range of motion following surgery, immobilizations, casting, or an injury. It can be beneficial for both acute pain (recent injuries, trauma, sports related accidents) as well as chronic pain that has been a concern for quite some time.
