Does manual therapy hurt?

No, it isn’t. Instead, it is incredibly effective at pain relief!

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

Many first-time physical therapy patients expect the treatment to be painful or unpleasant. These assumptions are incorrect because manual therapy is both painless and non-invasive. The best part is that it does not require the use of potentially dangerous medications.

Our physical therapists are medical professionals who understand the workings of the human body. You’ll leave your first appointment with our physical therapist in less pain and hopeful for the future of your treatment.

In fact, many patients see results after just one session.

Types of manual therapy offered at our New York, NY physical therapy clinic

Grand Street Wellness Center will use a variety of therapeutic techniques to relieve your pain. Here are some examples of popular manual therapy treatments:

Manual traction

The application of gentle pressure to one or more body parts, such as your neck and back, to assist soft tissues in regaining their natural mobility is known as manual traction.

Joint mobilization

Low-velocity pressure is used to move confined joints during joint mobilization.

Spinal manipulation

A physical therapist uses spinal manipulation to assess and improve spinal function. It also aids in the reduction of inflammation and the enhancement of nerve function.

Soft tissue massage

Deep pressure techniques and stretching are used in soft tissue massage to help our physical therapists locate severely restricted areas of your body. The scar tissue and adhesions that are typically caused by inflammation or damage can then be broken up. Soft tissue massage can improve healing by increasing blood flow to the muscles and soft tissues.
