Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a skilled, hands-on approach to mobilizing and manipulating muscles and joints. For Physical Therapists, hands are their tools that help them listen to muscles and joints to assess problem areas and to render treatment. The Physical Therapists at Advanced Physical Therapy Solutions use manual therapy as one technique to improve mobility and flexibility and to reduce pain. Frequently, manual therapy will be combined with exercise programs or other physical therapy modalities to promote healthy joint movement, coordination and balance, and muscle strength.
