Long-term discomfort is debilitating and can prevent a person from living a normal life. This discomfort can come from random pains, injuries, car wrecks, and normal aging that results in muscle tightness, tension, and other aching joint pains. With the goal to relieve these types of pain, people often look to find a physical therapist.
Physical therapists might recommend manual therapy as part of a patient’s healing journey. This hands-on method has been found to bring reduced pain and tension in both the short-term and long-term healing processes for many patients.

What is Manual Therapy?

Manual Therapy is a specialized physical therapy treatment that consists of various types of treatment interventions applied to articular and periarticular anatomical structures. It involves delivering skillful multiple hands-on techniques that are used to bring relief to the patient. The treatment techniques are aimed toward muscles, joints, tendons, fascia, nerves, joint capsules, etc. These interventions, when performed in the right way can produce relief from pain, improve discomfort, and restore normal mobility of the joint.

Patients who receive manual therapy treatment commonly see the following results:

Manual therapy treatments are known to produce biomechanical and neurophysiological effects on the targeted tissues. These passive skilled treatments are well known to create positive relief experiences for patients and to reduce distressing symptoms. Physical therapists will sometimes also use instruments to target deeper tissues specifically to reduce tightness and tension in the myofascial structures.
