What is Manual Therapy?
In general, manual therapy is a treatment, which is performed by a physiotherapist using only his/her hands. In the process of manual therapy various techniques are being used in order to appease the pain, experienced by the patient.
Manual therapy encompasses many techniques, including joint mobilizations and manipulations – specific and accurate movements that vary in speed, intensity, amplitude and range of motion, by which a neurophysiological effect is created which helps to relax and take the tension away from the tissues, ease the pain and activate the muscles.
