Manual Therapy is a key component of physical therapy delivered with the skilled hands of your therapist rather than a machine or device. It focuses on identifying the causes of musculoskeletal pain and disability by placing pressure on muscle tissues and mobilizing joints. Manual therapy can help to increase range of motion, reduce inflammation, improve function, induce relaxation, and provide longer lasting relief. Our skilled therapists can determine if manual therapy is the right fit for you.
