Physical Therapy Interventions
Manual therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that is delivered with the hands. 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 long lasting relief. Our expert therapists can determine if manual therapy is the right fit for you.
Physical therapists are experts in designing exercise programs to address specific problems with the goal of maximizing function and performance. Therapeutic exercise can help to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility, endurance, coordination, agility and balance. Our skilled team of physical therapists will design an exercise program according to your individual needs.
