Alleviating Pain through Hands-On Care
Manual physical therapy is considered a specialized form of therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. Our highly trained therapists are specialized in treating muscle pain and/or disability by applying pressure on muscle tissue and manipulating joints. Therapists may utilize various manual therapy methods based on the individual needs of each patient.
