Much of what we do at Summit Physiotherapy involves the use of manual therapy. Manual therapy involves the use of a therapist’s hands to help restore the function and balance of the connective tissues, muscle and joint that are causing pain.
It is a highly specialized form of physical therapy. When used in conjunction with other treatments, like ultrasound and exercise therapy, it is incredibly effective.
During a manual therapy treatment, the physiotherapist applies pressure in a specific direction on the affected connective tissues, muscles and joints, working to decrease the pain caused by muscle and tissue tension and joint dysfunction.
Manual therapy is another reason why Summit’s hands-on, results-oriented approach helps our clients feel better! For more information, or to book your consultation, call us today or book an appointment online.
