Manual Therapy

Balance Physical Therapy





Manual Therapy Service

Manual therapy service is applying a force to patient’s body with our hands or with another part of your body, like your elbow or forearm. The force effects a change in the behavior or movement of a particular tissue.

Manual therapy service could include a joint manipulation. Most people think of that as a crack or a pop or snap in a spine or a joint like an ankle, for example. It could also mean something as simple as a muscle stretch. The facilitation of a muscle for a contractile or neurological reeducation effect is also manual therapy.

  • Competently competent! I have been to several PTs for my issue. None took the time to really evaluate and come up with ideas that actually made a difference. We are still working the issue, but I have felt so cared for. John takes an interest to make sure that the patient is getting the right care they need. Happy!! 5/5 stars Thursday, 06 October 2016 18:05:23
