Our therapists use a variety of hands on techniques to treat joint, muscle, nerve and other soft tissue impairments. Guided by assessment findings, a variety of techniques can be utilized to treat soft tissue and joint structures, with the goal of reducing pain and inflammation, restoring range of motion, stimulating tissue repair, increasing tissue extensibility, optimizing movement and improving function. Manual Therapy and Soft Tissue techniques include joint mobilizations, joint manipulations, mobilizations with movement, muscle energy techniques, traction, myofascial release and massage. These techniques elicit a neurophysiological response associated with the body’s pain modulation circuit. It is common for a therapist to use a variety of the above techniques to provide effective and thorough treatment.
