Manual therapy: A critical component of any rehabilitation program


The laying of hands has been a vitally important component of medicine for centuries and now research continues to support its benefits. Specifically I'm referring to the science of skilled manual therapy. This classification includes joint mobilization, manipulation and soft tissue mobilization.

Quite often joint restrictions are the main reason why someone has limited range of motion or chronic pain in that area. All of this might manifest itself as lower back pain or neck pain. Maybe it is limited shoulder motion and pain with overhead activities. This can't be corrected by just using palliative modalities like moist heat, ice or massage. It takes skilled hands to asses the joint mechanics and to develop a plan for full recovery.
The key is to receive a comprehensive evaluation to pinpoint the area of concern. Then manual therapy will often become a critical component of the treatment plan for full healing and recovery. Call db Orthopedic Physical Therapy, PC at 732-747-1262 for an appointment to begin your treatment today.
