What is Manual Therapy?

Manual therapy is one of the most effective “Hands-on therapy “ techniques. It involves using hands to apply pressure, movement or manipulation to the muscle, joints , tissue or nerves of the body. 

The core principle of manual therapy lies in its ability to target specific areas, manipulating joints and soft tissues to alleviate pain and enhance mobility. This hands-on approach aids in tissue repair, reduces inflammation, and releases tension in muscles and nerves. Manual therapy is often combined with other forms such as therapeutic exercises and activity, neuromuscular rehabilitation, modalities and patient education to achieve better results.

What We Can Treat With Manual Therapy

frequently used manual therapy techniques

IASTM / Graston Technique


In this specialized form of manual therapy, ergonomic stainless steel tools are used to gently massage and scrape the targeted areas to address pain and inflammation, scar tissue and adhesions, muscle spasms and tightness, and joint stiffness that will help to promote mobility and recovery. Physical therapists employ the IASTM/Graston Technique to address a spectrum of disorders, from Upper/ lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and rotator cuff tears to quadricep pain, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, and headaches. If you’ve suffered a soft tissue injury, encountered a sports-related incident, or experienced mobility issues post-injury, the IASTM/Graston Technique can be your tool for recovery. 

Soft Tissue Mobilization / Myofascial Release 


Myofascial release is a type of hands-on therapy that aims to relieve tension and pain in the fascia, the connective tissue that covers and supports the muscles. By applying gentle and sustained pressure to the tight or restricted areas of the fascia, myofascial release can improve the range of motion, flexibility, and circulation of the affected tissues.
Soft tissue mobilization technique uses a hands-on -approach to manipulate muscle, ligaments and fascia of the body and targets scar tissue post-soft tissue injury by utilizing stretching and deep pressure to break down rigid muscle tissue, release fascial adhesions, improve tissue mobility and blood flow and promote healing. Let healing hands guide you towards enhanced range of motion and overall well-being, making STM an essential component of injury recovery and revitalized physical health.

Maitland joint mobilization – spine & extremities

Experience pain relief and enhanced mobility with the Maitland technique—a physiotherapy method dedicated to easing physical pain and stiffness. Acting as a diagnostic tool, it employs diverse mobilizations on the spine, peripheral joints, and other areas to improve freedom of movement. Through controlled, passive, and accessory movements, the Maitland approach systematically identifies and surpasses limitations. Our therapists guide you in muscle stretching, stabilization techniques, and exercises, enabling continued progress at home. Embrace a holistic approach to well-being, understanding, and addressing physical limitations with the Maitland technique—a key to a more flexible and resilient body.

Neuro Mobilization

This specialized technique focuses on optimizing nerve mobility, crucial for overall physical function. Our skilled practitioners utilize gentle and targeted movements to alleviate nerve tension, reducing pain and enhancing neural mobility. Neuromobilization is particularly beneficial for those dealing with conditions such as sciatica, nerve entrapment, and neuropathy. This precise and tailored approach promotes nerve health, contributing to improved flexibility, reduced discomfort, and enhanced overall well-being.

Muscle Energy Techniques 

This manual therapy approach engages active patient participation to correct musculoskeletal imbalances. Our skilled therapists guide you through specific muscle contractions, utilizing your own energy to enhance joint flexibility and restore optimal function. Muscle Energy Techniques are effective for addressing issues like joint stiffness, muscle tightness, and postural misalignments. By harnessing the power of your muscles through controlled isometric contractions, this technique promotes increased range of motion, reduced pain, and improved muscle balance.
