Manual Therapy

Manual therapy refers to the hands on approach by a physiotherapist and consists of but isn't limited to soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, joint mobilisation, passive range of movement techniques. Manual therapy is an approach to treatment that specialises in a holistic assessment of the presenting condition that looks at treating the underlying cause rather than the actual condition itself. For instances if a individual is complaining of shoulder pain, the problem may not be with the actual shoulder but the biomechanical infrastructures of the back such as incorrect posture and gait pattern. Bu correcting these imbalances this can aid in the relief of pain that has been referred to another location.

Manual therapy can treat and is for the following:-

  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Incorrect posture
  • Musculoskeletal imbalances and dysfunctions
  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase circulation
  • Break up scar tissue
  • Reduce referred pain

The specialist physiotherapists at sports and spinal physio maintain the most up to date evidence based practice treatments based on recent studies in order for their clients to receive the best form of treatment leading on to a faster recovery period.

The first appointment with one of our physiotherapists will assess the presenting condition and through evidence based practice and reasoning a treatment plan will be tailor made to aid in the best recovery possible. Manual techniques may be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment modalities.
