Also known as “hands-on therapy,” manual therapy is a specialized treatment performed by licensed physical therapists. During this treatment, your physical therapist will manipulate joints and soft tissue with nothing more than their hands. That means no intimidating machines or equipment involved – just hands!
Joint mobilization is a type of manual therapy performed here at our physical therapy clinic. It involves the passive movement of specific joints using the skilled application of force, direction, and technique. A physical therapist can use his or her hands to mobilize an affected joint, or may elect to use certain tools, to help deliver the desired treatment effect.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
The muscles, tendons, and ligaments that comprise the pelvic floor all serve an extremely important purpose, as they support the core of your body. One of our highly trained physical therapists can help in relieving your pelvic pain, improving your flexibility, and increasing your overall functionality.
Sometimes pain occurs outside of the traditional realm. Sometimes, our bodies may feel pain due to an underlying condition that we have no control over. When we experience pain, it can linger for hours, days, weeks, or even months.
Left untreated, concussions can even inhibit growth in young children, and bring on early dementia for older patients. Fortunately, the physical therapy field is continually discovering new ways to help patients suffering from long-term concussion complications.
Balance and Gait
When a problem develops with your gait, such as due to an injury or some other abnormality, it can lead to discomfort when walking, as well as a significant amount of pain.
