Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy Can Help With:

  • Back, neck, and joint pain
  • Spine and disc damage
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Bursitis
  • Sprains
  • Soft tissue injuries

Myofascial tissues are the connective tissues that wrap your muscles and bones. When these tissues get tight, they can cause pain and discomfort, as well as decreased blood flow. For this reason, we may prescribe medical massage as a component of your overall treatment plan.

Manual therapy relieves pain and discomfort in a specific area using pressure, rubbing, kneading, and stretching techniques to loosen the myofascial tissues similar to massage. 

But, the benefits of medical massage stretch beyond pain relief. Healthy, strong connective tissue is critical to the proper functioning of your body and damaged connective tissue can create a cascading effect into other body systems. Manual therapy can help prevent this by treating damage in your connective tissues to restore your health and proper functioning. To achieve results, your provider will employ hands-on, therapeutic procedures designed to promote blood flow, relaxation, and healing in your injured areas. 

Myofascial release is a natural, effective method for healing a variety of health conditions.

Because damaged tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function, a tissue injury may also restrict the movement of your joints. 

Providers at Core Medical Center will determine if chiropractic care should be part of your customized treatment plan. If so, you may undergo a chiropractic adjustment, also called a spinal manipulation. During this procedure, the doctor will manually adjust your bones to restore joint mobility. Manipulation, or adjustment, of the affected joint and tissues restores mobility, thus alleviating pain and muscle tightness and allowing tissues to heal.

Manual therapy is an ideal solution to problems in the connective tissue of your musculoskeletal system.
