Manual Physical Therapy consists of skilled “Hands-on” treatment provided by the PT.

Treatment may include moving joints in specific directions and at different speeds to regain movement (joint mobilization and manipulation), muscle stretching, passive movements of the affected body part, or having the patient move the body part against the therapist’s resistance to improve muscle activation and timing.

Selected specific soft tissue techniques may also be used to improve the mobility and function of tissue and muscles.
