Highly specific soft tissue, fascial, and joint mobilization as well as stretching to restore musculoskeletal health and improve mobility. We utilize instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, including cupping, scraping tools, and Hypervolt. This is the hands-on portion of your treatment to allow your body to move in a way to prevent tissue injury.
Manual therapy offers a range of benefits, including pain reduction, stress relief, improved joint mobility and soft tissue health, increased blood flow, and decreased inflammation. When combined with appropriate exercise progression, manual therapy can help you recover faster and return to your favorite activities. Your body functions best when your joints and tissues work together harmoniously. If dysfunction occurs, manual therapy can be instrumental in restoring normal movement patterns.
To illustrate the effectiveness of manual therapy, let’s consider headaches as an example. During your evaluation, your therapist will assess areas of stiffness in your joints and tissues, as well as identify any associated weakness. Based on these findings, the therapist will apply targeted manual techniques to restore movement and alleviate pain in the affected areas. Additionally, they will guide you through specific exercises that promote strength and stability where weakness is present. While your therapist can provide you with stretches to do throughout the day alone, combining these stretches with manual techniques can lead to a quicker response and reduced headache frequency.
By incorporating manual therapy into your treatment plan, you can experience the multiple benefits it provides for optimal healing and recovery.
