Manual Therapy

Injuries or post-surgical conditions often contribute to limited and painful motion. This can lead to pain and a decrease in daily activities. Physical therapists often use a variety of specific, hands-on techniques, called manual therapy, to improve mobility in joints and soft tissues. Our highly trained physical therapists assess whether the muscles and joints have hypo- (restricted) or hyper- (excessive) mobility. Once restrictions or other dysfunctions are identified, the physiotherapist may use various manual therapy techniques to reduce pain, improve mobility, facilitate movement, increase soft tissue extensibility and restore function.
