Manual Therapy


Are You Looking For Safe and Effective Pain Relief

Cedar Hill Physical Therapy Greensboro is here to Help!

Sometimes pain and stiffness can make exercises difficult to perform. Over the years, Paul the Physical Therapist has adopted and developed techniques that make moving easier and less painful. By applying gentle pressure with his hands on a person’s body, pain and stiffness can be decreased and the therapeutic exercise becomes easier to perform and more beneficial.

There are a variety of reasons why this works- one being that these techniques can allow tense muscles that are guarding a painful area to relax. While muscle guarding may be of benefit during the very early time after an injury, it is often a reason why pain persists far too long. Manual therapy can “release” you to move more freely!

If you experience persistent, nagging pain, this physical therapy can be helpful. Call Cedar Hill Physical Therapy Greensboro at (336) 644-9661 today to get started.

What is manual therapy?

Manual therapy is a form of hands-on therapy that is used to assist physical therapists in mobilizing rigid joints and soft tissue.

This advanced form of therapy assists in the reduction of swelling, reduction of restraint, mobilization of joints, and enhancement of mobility.

Paul the Physical Therapist has received extensive training in specialized manual therapy methods.

Is manual therapy painful?

Various manual therapy techniques

There are a variety of manual therapy techniques available to patients. Manual therapy techniques may include, but are not limited to:

Manual traction

During manual traction, the therapist will apply gentle pressure to a specific region of the body to gently stretch the soft tissues and restore regular, natural motion.

This technique can be used on a variety of areas of the body, such as the arms, legs, and back, but the neck is the most widely used position for manual traction.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft tissue mobilization is a form of this therapy where Paul the Physical Therapist uses hands-on techniques to break adhesions and optimize muscle function.

Adhesions are your body’s attempt to heal a soft tissue injury with a lengthy inflammation process, resulting in long strands of scar tissue. These new tissues pull against one another, forming trigger points of pain.

Soft tissue mobilization can improve range of motion, reduce swelling and edema, restore function, and decrease pain.
