Many physios will state that they perform manual therapy, but that can refer to a variety of physiotherapy techniques. Manual therapy is essentially any treatment that is performed with your hands. This includes:
- Soft tissue massage
- Joint manipulation
- Trigger pointing
- Joint mobilisation
- Manual lymphatic drainage
After performing a thorough assessment, your physio will decide on the best course of treatment to treat your injury. Manual therapy is commonly used for joint stiffness and muscle tension, which can restrict your body’s movement and/or cause pain. It will free up these problems and allow you to move that body region normally.
