Manual Therapy involves the use of skilled hands to assess, diagnose and treat restrictions of movement in the body. Manually applied assessment skills and treatments, such as palpation, joint mobilizations, and manipulations, myofascial/soft tissue/neural release are highly effective in treating soft tissue and joint restriction or excessive mobility in the body. These limitations can result in pain, and an alteration in function, posture, and movement. Manual Therapy involves the use of measured movements to twist, pull, or push bones and joints into position. This can help loosen tight tissues around a joint, reduce pain in a joint and surrounding tissue, and help with flexibility and alignment.
