Manual therapy, or manipulative therapy, is a physical treatment primarily used by physical therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability; it mostly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilization and joint manipulation.
Manual therapy is used to treat motion impairments that cause pain and decreased range of motion. Joint-specific techniques are indicated when the motion impairment is caused by loss of the normal joint motion as a result of a reversible joint hypomobility.
Manual therapy effectively addresses the mechanical, biochemical, and psychological qualities of the treatment process. You’re expected to see better range of motion in stiffer joints and pain relief by improving how your brain processes pain signals. One of your body’s main systems that controls pain is activated by specific muscle movements, which means that manual therapy can help ease how much pain you experience.
