Lakeshore Physical Therapy: What is Manual Therapy?
Manual therapy is a term for a clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific, hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries by the physical therapists at Lakeshore Physical Therapy. The term includes a variety of techniques such as joint mobilization (passive physiological movement of joints), soft tissue mobilization, muscle energy techniques, traction, and passive range of motion. Joint mobilization stretches the surrounding muscles, ligaments and the joint capsule, which helps restore normal joint mobility. During injury, a joint may become stiff and require mobilization to allow remodeling of the capsular tissue. Manual therapy can also be a useful tool to decrease pain. Muscle energy techniques decrease muscle guarding, tightness, and spasm, thereby reducing pain. Traction is an effective, specific technique to take pressure off vertebral discs and eliminate pressure on the nerves. Lastly, passive range of motion is a technique performed by a therapist to move a joint through the range without effort from the patient, which improves joint function. Exercises are extremely beneficial after these manual therapy techniques are performed to maintain the improvements made.

Why Manual Therapy? The answer is simple – it’s proven to get you better, faster. Manual therapy is one of the corner stones of physical therapy care at Lakeshore Physical Therapy and each of our therapists is highly qualified to perform these skilled techniques as part of our treatment.

For more info, please call 773-770-2419 (LP) or 312-801-8440 (IC).
