How will manual therapy help me find relief?
Manual therapy is a crucial part of a holistic physical therapy treatment plan. It helps to release chronic pain patterns, treat muscle imbalances, reduce swelling, minimize inflammation, and increase range of motion.
Manual therapy, defined.
Our physical therapists have received extensive training in specialized manual therapy techniques. Manual therapy is a holistic approach that mobilizes and releases stiff joints, muscles, and soft tissues.
Our physical therapists use a variety of techniques and hi-tech tools that help move your tendons, ligaments, and joints in ways that relieve pain and promote healing. They also help in reducing scar tissue and minimizing swelling. This specialized form of hands-on treatment also helps in decreasing restriction, mobilizing joints, and increasing your range of motion.
What do manual therapy treatments look like?
Manual therapy techniques may include, but are not limited to:
When you experience chronic pain in the back, neck or extremities it is usually the result of a restricted joint. Our physical therapists are specially trained in mobilizations for restricted joints. Mobilization techniques are safe, effective, and painless, allowing for an increase in your range of motion, and the improvement of the restricted joint’s mobility.
Our clinic also offers clinically-proven computerized technology that analyzes and delivers multiple impulses at specific velocities to restricted joints and soft tissues for the most gentle and accurate manual therapy treatment available in Eden Prairie, MN, and the surrounding areas.
When our physical therapists perform manual traction, they will apply gentle force to a certain area of the body, in order to gently stretch the soft tissues and restore normal, natural movement.
While the neck is the most common area for manual traction, it can also be performed on other parts of the body, including the arms, legs, and back.
