Manual Therapy: The Safe Solution

It is a safe, hands-on technique physical therapists use to move stiff joints and soft tissue. In other words, it is a therapeutic therapy that helps with edema, restraint, joint mobilization, and mobility improvement.

Is This Treatment Method Painful?

No, manual therapy is not painful but, instead, incredibly effective at relieving pain.

Many first-time physical therapy patients expect PT to be painful or unpleasant. These assumptions could not be further from the truth, as manual therapy is painless and non-invasive. The best part is that it works without dangerous medications.

Our physical therapists are medical professionals, and we understand how your body works. After you visit our Coralville, Iowa City, North Liberty, Tiffin, Tipton, or Williamsburg, IA physical therapy clinic, you will be filled with hope and probably in less pain!

Types Of Manual Therapy Used At Our Coralville, Iowa City, North Liberty, Tiffin, Tipton, or Williamsburg, IA Physical Therapy Clinic

Progressive Rehabilitation Associates will choose various therapeutic techniques to ease your pain. The following are some examples of common manual therapy treatments:

Manual traction

Manual traction involves applying gentle pressure to one or more body parts, like your neck and your back, to help soft tissues regain their natural mobility.

Joint mobilization

Joint mobilization helps move confined joints with low-velocity pressure.

Spinal manipulation

Spinal manipulation helps evaluate and improve spinal function and reduce inflammation and improve nerve function.

Soft tissue massage

Soft tissue massage uses deep pressure techniques and stretching to assist our physical therapists in finding the parts of your body that are severely restricted. From there, we can break up scar tissue and adhesions, typically caused by inflammation or damage. Soft tissue massage can improve blood circulation to the muscles and soft tissues, which also helps with healing.
