Manual Therapy is used to repair neuromusculoskeletal problems that cause pain in the human body.
Physiotherapy is a continuously evolving science requiring consistent follow-ups and consulting of research evidence in order for the physiotherapist to be able to provide the best possible therapeutic outcomes. Manual Therapy is a special musculoskeletal physiotherapy treatment based on research evidence and includes:
- Clinical evaluation of the patient through comprehensive history taking and the application of special musculoskeletal tests that aim to determine the underlying pathology of the dysfunction.
- Application of special tissue and joints mobilization techniques manually by an experienced physiotherapist, according to the indications of the clinical evaluation.
- Application of orthopedic manipulations in joints that trigger pain and show reduced mobility.
- Indications of appropriate therapeutic exercises that aim to improve tissue elasticity and maintain the results achieved through treatment.
Manual Therapy is used in most musculoskeletal problems caused by modern everyday life, including:
- Cervical spine syndrome
- Lumbar pain/sciatica
- Intervertebral disc herniation.
- Meniscus tear
- Cruciate ligament rupture.
- Frozen shoulder syndrome
- Muscle strain
The goal is to eliminate the symptoms which may include pain, numbness, stiffness and help the patient regain full functionality and autonomy without restrictions.
