This video demonstrates what Manual therapy is and how it works. We use our hands to assess and treat stiff joints or tight muscles. This helps you move better and feel better and alleviate pain.
These techniques are used assess and treat the movement dysfunctions in your body that are affecting your mobility or ability to participate in sports and recreational activities.
Our physiotherapists complete a detailed biomechanical assessment of the muscles, joints, fascia and nerves to determine where you need the most assistance. We then implement manual therapy techniques to assist you with regaining movement or learning to control excessive movement.
We use Manual Therapy in combination with other services, such as Acupuncture, IMS, Movement Retraining and Core Strengthening, to provide you with the most comprehensive care possible. Our focus is to get your body working again and get you back on the path to achieving your sport, recreation, health and lifestyle goals.
