Manual Therapy

What is Manual Therapy?

Manual therapy is the art and science of one on one, hands on interaction between a health care practitioner and a patient. You may be one of them who benefit from the manual therapy in your integrated treatment program. The hands on treatment of muscles, ligaments and joints can restore normal movements and functions to joints, muscles and soft tissues.

Manual therapy particularly when combined with exercise and other therapies can help regulate pain and reduce or eliminate inflammations.

Manual therapy is a highly effective treatment option for musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. At Vigor Physiotherapy, we use hands-on techniques to manipulate and mobilize joints and soft tissues, reducing pain and restoring function. Whether you are suffering from a sports injury, chronic pain, or recovering from surgery, our skilled therapists will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan to meet your individual needs. With manual therapy, we can help you achieve improved mobility, reduced pain, and greater overall physical wellness. Contact us today to learn more about how manual therapy can benefit you.

Using Manual Therapy at our Clinic

Coupled with exercise to strengthen and stabilise newly promoted joint movement, we find manual therapy to be an effective way to get fast pain relief for our patients.

During your session we will look at your medical history and find out about you and your symptoms. We will then use manual therapy to identify problem areas and develop the best treatment according to your own preferences, lifestyle and aims.

From here we can guide you with further treatment and suggest lifestyle changes you can make to assist your recovery, improve performance and prevent future injury.
