Manual Therapy is a broad term used to describe hands-on Physiotherapy. Treatment may include applying varying pressures to joints or soft tissues in specific directions to reduce pain and improve movements. Specific soft tissue and joint mobilisation can be used as an adjunct to exercise therapy to encourage soft tissue healing, promote optimal muscle length and to improve quality of movement.
