Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a specialized, hands-on approach to relieve pain and promote functional movement.


Manual therapy includes physical therapists that treat acute and chronic pain conditions affecting all areas of the body. When injury causes soft-tissue and joint restrictions that produce pain during movement, manual therapy can improve mobility, reduce pain, and restore normal functioning of the soft-tissues and joints.

Manual therapy


Manual therapy is the hands-on treatment of injured or underperforming muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. This treatment may include moving the joints in specific directions to regain movement (join mobilization), muscle stretching, manual traction, and spinal manipulation. Soft tissue massages are also used to improve the mobility and function of tissues, nerves, and muscles. Many patients feel increased satisfaction when manual therapy is used in conjunction with exercise and education.

When To Arrive

On average, a patient’s first visit lasts about one hour. We ask that patients arrive 15 minutes early to sign-in and complete paperwork.


What To Bring

On your first visit, you’ll need to bring your physician referral or prescription (if needed), your insurance card, your primary registration forms, your ID or driver’s license and your co-payment (as applicable).


Your First Visit

Our office managers will help you through completing the registration and insurance process, then you will begin your evaluation with a therapist. It is helpful to know your key past medical history, previous treatments, current medications, and any symptoms you may be experiencing. Your movement, strength, coordination, and other factors will be evaluated before our therapist discusses with you their recommendation and prepares a personalized treatment plan.


Treatment Plan

Evaluation findings will be shared with your referring physician or preferred medical expert, and the office managers will help you plan your series of visits based on the quantity and frequency determined by your therapist. Your subsequent visits will focus on treatment that is based on your diagnosis and individualized goals.
