What Is Manual Therapy?

As with soft tissue techniques, manual therapy can provide excellent short-term benefits in reducing your pain.

At Origin Physiotherapy the hands on treatment is only one part of your Physiotherapy process. The incorporation of hands on treatment alongside exercise therapy and advice can be a fantastic combination to aid recovery but will not give you long lasting benefits used by itself.

About Manual Therapy

Manual therapy at Origin Physiotherapy in Tunbridge Wells can include manipulations (high speed clicking and cracking) or mobilisations (slower speed for longer duration) to the joints of the body, inducing the neck, mid and low back and mobilisations with movement.

Manual therapy can be mobilisations with movement whereby the therapist will mobilise a specific joint while you perform a movement alongside that.

Manual therapy creates feedback to the brain, altering pain and movement. Similar to soft tissue techniques, manual therapy can provide individuals with a varied sensory experience and can be a significant mechanism for pain relief. This in turn allows the body to move fully, efficiently and safely.
