Relieving Pain. Restoring Movement.
Manual therapy refers to any ‘hands-on’ technique that a physiotherapist may use to help relieve your pain and/or get a stiff area moving again. This can involve mobilisations or manipulations to a joint, and the amount of force used can range from gentle with small oscillations to a manipulation, where you may experience a crack or popping sensation. It may also involve traction, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, and specific soft tissue mobilisation (SSTM).
