Manual therapy treatments can include hands-on work that incorporates mobilization of the nerves, myofascial release, mobilization of spinal segments and joints, as well as soft tissue mobilization.

This approach to physical therapy is effective for both acute and chronic pain conditions.

It is used to treat injuries and conditions that affect the joints, muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.

This means that injuries affecting the bony or soft tissue structures that can cause you pain or restrict the movement in your body can benefit from this type of treatment.

It is also helpful in relaxing muscles and breaking up scar tissue. It also contributes to increasing joint movement and helps to reduce painful muscle spasms.

Common orthopedic conditions that are treated with manual therapy may include:

  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Post-operative conditions
  • Bursitis
  • Joint restrictions
  • Tendinitis
  • Athletic injuries

The benefits of manual physiotherapy are extensive. For orthopedic patients dealing with acute or chronic musculoskeletal conditions, it can help to reduce pain, improve joint movement, and improve posture, circulation, and strength in patients.

It can also be combined with exercise, modalities and other treatments to help improve in recovery.
