Orthopedic manual therapy is the assessment and treatment of joint, neuromuscular or fascial problems with hands-on treatment, education and exercise.

An orthopedic manual therapy assessment often includes:

  • a thorough history
  • a detailed observation of posture, bodymechanics, ergonomics, functional movement patterns
  • a hands-on examination of the relevant articular(joint), myofascial, neural and visceral structures
  • specific tests that help to differentiate the root cause
  • hands-on techniques to reduce pain and restore mobility in the articular, myofascial, neural, visceral systems
  • progressive, individualized exercises to restore timely and coordinated movement patterns, muscle balance and patterning, strength and stability, with integration into function
  • education to help you understand your symptoms and develop the tools to manage your condition independently and prevent relapse.

The key goals are to decrease pain and improve comfort, restore mobility, and improve function so that you can return to doing the things you love!
