Manual therapy or “hands on therapy” is used by Caulfield Physiotherapy to help your body recover from injury and enhance performance.
The manual therapy techniques we use in our clinic include:
Mobilisation of Joints
Stiffness can cause restricted movement and pain. Our mobilising techniques reduce stiffness by lengthening soft tissue structures of the body, such as ligaments, muscles and joints. The type and level of mobilisation varies from extremely gentle to strong techniques.
Manipulative techniques are used only for a small percentage of patients. A strict protocol of testing vital structures is carried out before manipulative techniques are used.
