TREATMENT & THERAPY
Back pain, neck pain and shoulder tension is common among both the young and the old. Anyone can experience this kind of pain from injuries, poor posture, age, birth defects and more. Many people with these kinds of aches and pain can benefit from using manual therapy and have seen significant results in doing so. Manual therapy is a hands-on technique where the therapist works out soft tissue like muscle tendon tightness and performs a skilled range of motion mobilizations. This includes IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization).
There are many different types of techniques to utilize when approaching manual therapy. One being myofascial release which promotes mobility and flexibility of the body's connective tissues. Another method used is soft tissue manipulation. This can reduce inflammation and workout any tightness in the muscle. Stretching the muscles is another way manual therapy can help your mobility. It can increase range of motion and flexibility. Many techniques have proven successful when done properly. We are a Leander physical therapy clinic that uses manual therapy effectively with proven results.
