What is manual therapy?

Manual therapy is a physical treatment primarily used by massage therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, manual osteopaths and osteopathic physicians to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability; it most commonly includes kneading and manipulation of soft tissue including fascia and joint; passive range of motion, manipulation or mobilization. Manual therapy can be defined differently (according to the profession describing it for legal purposes) to state what is permitted within a practitioners scope of practice.

At prehab we do not implement joint mobilization or manipulation. We can, however, refer to a great PT or Chiropractor if that is needed.
