- Addressing back pain whether they are chronic or acute.
- Repairing joint movements is usually experienced from physical injuries. Such as sports injuries.
Physioworld clinic utilizes skilled manual therapy techniques performed by registered physiotherapists, to assess and treat soft tissues and joint structures. A great advantage of using manual therapy is that there are no known side effects because the treatment is hands-on.
Our manual therapy techniques are performed by skilled and registered physiotherapists.Physioworld can use manual therapy to treat such injuries as it is:
- Useful in increasing joint movement beyond a restricted range of motion.
- Helpful in reducing painful muscle spasms.
- Effective for acute and chronic pain.
- Helpful in relaxing muscles and breaking up scar tissue.
Near the end of treatment, muscles feel relaxed and calmed and there is an increased circulation of oxygen in the bloodstream. There is little to no discomfort due to the specific types of exercises and massage techniques used in manual therapy.
Joint mobilization involves loosening up stiff or restricted joints by applying continuous or vibrating movements directly to the joint barrier and overlapping the actual bone surfaces with each other to prevent the patient from moving the joint on their own. It is the process of loosening the joints.
This is a manual therapy that not only stretches and relaxes muscles, but also normalizes joint movements. This technique uses the spontaneous contraction of the patient’s muscles against a controlled opposite force applied by the therapist in a particular direction from the exact location.
After 35 seconds of contraction, the therapist guides the joint to a new barrier, where the patient contracts the muscle again. This can be repeated more than once. Muscle energy technology is usually well tolerated by the patient and does not stress the joints.
