Types of Manual Therapy
There are varieties of manual therapy techniques. Some are;
Soft Tissue Mobilization
This technique is prescribed to help manipulate the soft tissues in your body. It is achieved through rhythmic stretching and deep pressure. The importance of this treatment is to ensure heavily restricted spots in your body are found and mobilized.
Previously, soft tissue mobilization was thought to be responsible for breaking up scar tissue, adhesions, improved blood flow and circulation at affected soft tissues and muscles. But this has been discovered to be untrue. Moreover, we still don’t know why this particular therapy has so many benefits. We can only speculate that it uses some neurological mechanism to aid its processes.
Joint mobilization is used to relieve restricted joints that may have been sustained from an injury. When you are experiencing restricted joints, it is associated with intense pain. Our therapist makes use of low-velocity pressure to relieve limited joints. However, this process is safe, painless, and effective for improving mobility at the affected joint, motion range, and pain reduction.
Manual traction is performed by applying a gentle pulling force to stretch soft tissues, improve movement, and restore your body to its normal function. It is mostly used for the neck but can also be performed on other body parts like your leg, back, and arm.
Mobilization with Movement- Mulligan concept
Mulligan concept is a special type of manual therapy that uses the hands or recommended straps to gently mobilize the spine and peripheral joint. At Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic, we employ this method to help patients alleviate pain or stiffness using specific guides.
