Manual Physical Therapy | What is it, and Who Needs it?
You may be apprehensive about starting your manual physical therapy at a rehabilitation center. You're not alone: many patients
often worry about the type of manual therapy techniques available. Physical therapists agree that exercise is essential in
body restoration. However, they may view exercise as a supplement to manual therapy.
It's essential to fully understand the type of therapy treatment you are receiving and why your physical therapist has recommended
it as opposed to other forms of treatment.
Manual physical therapy treatment is an advanced form of physical therapy where the physical therapist uses his or her hands
to offer treatment, as opposed to the use of tools or devices. In manual therapy, your doctor will use his or her hands to
put pressure on the inflamed area in an attempt to reduce the pain caused by muscle tension or spasm and joint dysfunction.
For instance, assuming you have inflammation in your knee, it is essential to determine the cause of your pain before commencing
the treatment process. Your physical therapist will want to know if the pain is due to injury, osteoarthritis or a knee replacement
Manual therapy techniques will assist your physical therapist to understand the cause of your pain and gauge the condition
of your muscles and body tissue. They help the therapist find out the exact location of the pain. He or she will then use
various soft tissue techniques to allow for joint mobility.
Once your physical therapist has completed the manual therapy, they might recommend exercise at their facility or at home
to stretch and strengthen the muscles. However, the type of therapy prescribed will entirely depend on your condition.
Manual physical therapy can relieve you of chronic back pain and can be used to treat immobile joints and a variety of skeleton
Therefore, the primary objective of manual physical therapy is for your speedy recovery. At Kaizen Physical Therapy, your
physical therapist will recommend the best treatment plan and advise you of the manual physical therapy techniques that will
be used to help you recover.
