Manual Therapy

Hands-On Approach for Optimal Recovery

Manual Therapy at Pursuit Physiotherapy

At Pursuit Physiotherapy, we recognize the profound impact of hands-on treatment in facilitating recovery and promoting overall well-being. Our Manual Therapy services are a cornerstone of our approach, offering personalized care to address a range of physical conditions and improve quality of life.

What is Manual Therapy?

Manual Therapy encompasses a variety of hands-on techniques employed by our skilled physiotherapists. This approach is essential in treating musculoskeletal conditions, aiding in pain relief, enhancing mobility, and improving functional ability. Our therapists use their hands to apply pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints, aiming to decrease pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.

Our Goals with Manual Therapy

The primary objectives of Manual Therapy at Pursuit Physiotherapy include:

  • Regaining Joint Movement: Restoring mobility in injured or impaired joints, preventing further deterioration.

  • Improving Tissue Elasticity: Stretching and mobilizing affected muscles and tissues to enhance flexibility and function.

  • Enhancing Muscle Activation and Timing: Improving the coordination and efficiency of muscle function.

  • Reducing Inflammation and Swelling: Alleviating discomfort and accelerating the healing process.

Our Preferred Techniques

Our physiotherapists are adept in a range of Manual Therapy techniques, including but not limited to:

  • Mobilizations: Gentle movements of joints and soft tissues to restore motion and reduce pain.

  • Scar Mobilizations: Techniques focused on reducing scar tissue formation and increasing flexibility.

  • Myofascial Release: Targeting the connective tissue to relieve pain and restore motion.

  • Soft Tissue Release: Techniques to relax tight muscles, improve blood circulation, and enhance tissue elasticity.

  • Mulligan Mobilizations: Joint mobilization combined with movement, designed to increase range of motion.

  • Taping: Using therapeutic tape to support muscles and joints, reduce pain, and prevent injury.

  • Muscle Energy Techniques: Using the patient’s own muscle contractions to improve flexibility and strengthen weak areas.
