Manual Therapy Relieves Pain

Nearly 8% of Americans experience chronic back pain. Due to back pain, they have missed at least one workday this year. If you are experiencing back pain, we know you are looking for a therapy solution.

Manual therapy relieves pain, and physical therapy appointments are available at The Therapy Network today.

The Benefits of Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a manipulative therapy for musculoskeletal pain and disability. It includes gentle and repeated pressure along the spine and surrounding muscles. The benefits of manual therapy include the following:

  • The therapy treats muscle, tendon, and bone pain
  • Manual therapy improves the range of motion and mobility
  • Posture is improved as pain is relieved
  • Relieves headaches and migraines as symptoms from musculoskeletal conditions
  • Manual therapy relieves muscle tension in the neck and shoulders
  • The therapy accelerates recovery time

The treatment is painless and does not use drugs or invasive procedures. The gentle pressure provided by your therapist moves your tendons, ligaments, and joints in ways to relieve pain.

How Does Massage Compare to Manual Therapy?

Many include spa massage in a healthy lifestyle plan. A spa massage reduces tension and stress while it promotes overall circulation.

Although massage is beneficial, manual therapy concentrates pressure and manipulative treatment along the spine and is performed by a therapist trained in musculoskeletal conditions.
