Physiotherapists use purely their hands to move and massage muscles, joints, and target pressure points on the body. Their delicate hands-on manipulation can stretch and loosen tense muscles and joints to restore your body’s natural functions without the use of any equipment.
What does it treat?
Manual therapy treats musculoskeletal tissues including: bones, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and fascia — a connective tissue that supports and separates muscles and organs of the body.
What results can be expected?
Manual therapy promotes an increase in the range of motion to restore the mobility and flexibility of joints. This hands-on treatment works to decrease pain and reduce inflammation/swelling by promoting the relaxation of muscles in addition to increasing circulation within the area.
