The Importance of Manual Therapy


Preneta Physical Therapists are highly trained in Manual Therapy, a specialized, effective form of physical therapy delivered with their experienced hands.

Manual Therapy is most often used as a treatment in conjunction with treatment using equipment and exercise. The practitioner uses their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and to manipulate joints to decrease pain and improve movement caused by muscle and joint tension and dysfunction. Soft tissue work, including massage, applies pressure to the body to relax muscles, break-up scar tissue, relax muscles and reduce pain. Mobilization can help loosen tight tissue around the joints to reduce pain and improve movement.

Using a one-on-one, hands on approach, the Preneta Physical Therapists are able to improve core stabilization and their muscle energy and fascial release techniques remove restrictions in the body, enabling proper body mechanics and movement.
