how manual therapy works

Using popular tools, percussive therapy, and hands-on massage, manual therapy is our favorite aspect of physical therapy. The pressure and style of therapy will be adjusted to suit your preferences. As Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapists, we use a hands-on approach to treat spine and peripheral conditions. Following assessment and treatment of a patient’s signs and symptoms, our physical therapists will construct a plan of care specifically for you.

health benefits of manual therapy

Manual therapy encompasses a variety of hands-on techniques, such as massage, joint mobilization, and manipulation, and offers a range of health benefits. This approach can significantly reduce pain and improve mobility by addressing musculoskeletal issues, including muscle tension, joint stiffness, and soft tissue restrictions. Manual therapy is particularly effective for treating conditions like back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis, as it promotes better joint function and muscle balance. It also enhances blood circulation, aiding in tissue healing and reducing inflammation. Furthermore, manual therapy can play a crucial role in stress reduction and overall relaxation, contributing to a sense of physical and mental well-being. Whether used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other therapies, manual therapy is a valuable tool for improving quality of life and maintaining optimal physical health.

manual therapy frequency

The suggested frequency and treatment for manual therapy can vary widely based on the individual’s condition and response to treatment. Initially, sessions may be more frequent, occurring 1-2 times per week, to address acute issues or provide immediate relief. As symptoms improve, the frequency may decrease, transitioning to maintenance sessions every few weeks or on an as-needed basis. The total number of sessions required will depend on the nature and severity of the condition, and it should be determined in evaluation with one of our physical therapists.
