Manual Therapy in Colchester, Essex
Choose Colchester Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic for services in manual therapy in Colchester, Essex. Manual therapy is a hands-on treatment modality which involves assessment and mobilisation of your soft tissue and joints.
Manual therapy is effective in modulating pain and improving the mobility of soft tissue and joints, augmenting your ability to exercise with a reduced level of discomfort and facilitating greater ranges of pain-free movement. Manual therapy can be used on peripheral joints e.g. Shoulder, Knee, Hip and Spinal joints and our physicians are available to provide a range of techniques in manual therapy in Colchester, Essex and the surrounding areas.
Mobilisation Techniques include:
Passive accessory mobilisation - the therapist mobilises individual joints.
Mobilisation with movement - the therapist assists joint movement while you actively move.
Manual traction – joints surfaces are distracted to reduce compression
Manipulation - a high velocity joint movement is created to achieve end range movement.
Soft tissue massage is also a form of manual therapy and is often used in combination with the mobilisation techniques mentioned above.
