Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a hands-on type of physiotherapy used to assess and treat pain, stiffness, and restrictions in the body. It uses a variety of hands-on techniques to work on different parts of the body. Techniques may include mobilization of joints, soft tissue massage, and manipulation. Manual therapy can be used by both acute and chronic conditions to reduce pain, improve posture, increase joint mobility and decrease disability from disease progression (such as arthritis). 

Most patients start experiencing the benefits of manual therapy within the first session. They leave the clinic feeling more relaxed and mobile than when they first arrived.
