Manual therapy service is applying a force to a patient’s body with our hands or with another part of your body, like your elbow or forearm. The force effects a change in the behavior or movement of a particular tissue.
Manual therapy service could include a joint manipulation. Most people think of that as a crack or a pop or snap in a spine or a joint like an ankle, for example. It could also mean something as simple as a muscle stretch. The facilitation of a muscle for a contractile or neurological reeducation effect is also manual therapy.
