Manual Therapy for Pain Relief
What is Manual Therapy?
Manual Therapy is a very effective hands on approach that is used for the treatment of muscles, ligaments, and joints. A physical therapist can target any areas of pain or discomfort that you may have with specialized movement and exercises that are utilized to strengthen weak muscle groups and improve your mobility. People who suffer from back pain, neck and shoulder pain, headaches and orthopedic conditions can benefit from this hands-on method.
How can manual therapy be utilized to help manage chronic pain?
Soft Tissue Mobilization: This type of treatment was created to improve mechanical movement as well as to restore a patient's range of motion. Depending on what areas of the body have been affected during your accident or injury, your therapist will apply various amount of pressure to break down any adhesion that may have formed.
Joint Mobilization: If your joins are limiting your range of motion, your physical therapist may use this method to help improve your mobility. The motions used in joint mobilization will strengthen surrounding tissue of the affected joints and can allow you to gain a normal range of motion as well as decrease pain.
Strain and Counterstrain: This method is commonly used to target and treat muscle spasms that occur in the body. Erase pain and reduce spasms with this hands-on technique.
Muscle Energy Techniques: Treat dysfunctional joints with this type of treatment that uses muscle contractions to relax and lengthen your muscles. It can also normalize the motion of your joints.
