Manual therapy

  • Do you feel like your aches and pains are affecting your life?
  • Are you not moving like you used to?
  • Are you sick of being in pain?
  • Do you waste time hoping it will get better?
  • Do you wish you had a clear action plan to reduce your pain?

Manual therapy is a clinical approach based on skilled “hands-on” therapy to decrease pain and improve the mobility of joints, soft tissues and nerves. Manual therapy is also used to assess, diagnose and treat a variety of symptoms and conditions.

At Physio117 we pride ourselves on providing highly skilled manual therapy techniques including joint mobilisations/manipulations. Their aim is to increase joint mobility and a pain-free range of movement as well as a better circulation within the joint.

Joint mobilisations are skilled passive movements of varied intensities and amplitudes applied to a joint.

Joint manipulations are a passive movement with high velocity and low amplitude applied to a joint.

Benefits of Manual Therapy include:

  • Modulate pain
  • Increase joint mobility and range of motion
  • Improve tissue repair
  • Improving tissue stability and extensibility
  • Reduce soft-tissue inflammation
  • Reduce muscle tension
  • Induce relaxation
  • Facilitate movement and exercise therapy
