Is manual therapy a safe practice?
Yes, in a word! One of the most advantageous elements of manual treatment is its non-invasive nature. Additionally, it does not involve the use of any potentially dangerous medications. Rather than that, our physiotherapists employ a range of treatments to assist in the movement of your tendons, ligaments, and joints in order to alleviate pain and promote recovery.
Our physiotherapists in Edmonton, Canada, are highly trained medical specialists who understand your body’s limitations and capabilities. Indeed, many patients report great pain alleviation and increased mobility following only one session.
What are the many classifications of manual therapy?
Techniques of manual therapy may include, but are not limited to the following:
Mobilization of Soft Tissue
Our physiotherapists in Edmonton, Canada, use soft tissue mobilization treatments to manipulate the soft tissues. This is accomplished through deep pressure and rhythmic stretching, which enables them to locate and mobilize severely restricted parts of your body.
Previously, it was believed that soft tissue mobilization was utilized to break up scar tissue and adhesions and improve blood flow and circulation to the damaged muscles and soft tissues. However, we now understand that this is not the case. Although, we still don’t know which mechanism is applied to achieve a promising result from this form of therapy as well as how it works. But we can only speculate that it works by some type of neurophysiological mechanism.
Mobilization in Collaboration
When you suffer from acute pain following an injury, it may be due to a limited joint. Our physiotherapists have been properly trained to mobilize restricted joints using low-velocity pressure.
Mobilization treatments are safe, effective, and painless, resulting in an increase in range of motion, a decrease in pain, and an improvement in the mobility of the restricted joint.
Mulligan Concept – Mobilization through Movement
Our Edmonton, Canada physiotherapists are guided by the basic rule of avoiding inflicting pain to their patients when applying the Mulligan Concept. Rather than that, we use mobilization with our hands or specialized straps to more gently mobilize the spine and peripheral joints. We can alleviate pain and stiffness by employing this concept.
Traction by hand
When our physiotherapists apply manual traction to a specific part of the body, they gently stretch the soft tissues using hands on the affected parts of the body in order to restore normal and natural movement. While manual traction is most frequently used on the neck, it can also be used on other regions of the body, including the arms, legs, and back.
