Manual Therapy

The core of our care at Symmetry is hands-on treatment. We incorporate a wide variety of manual therapies into each therapy session, which may include joint mobilization, soft-tissue release techniques, nerve mobilization, assisted movements and stretching, or high-velocity ‘thrust’ manipulations. Enabling joints and muscles to move without restriction allows the body to attain optimal mobility. Restoring normal movement in an area that has been too loose or too stiff also has a significant impact on decreasing pain. Physical therapy research is consistently demonstrating that the use of manual therapy generates good treatment results, particularly when combined with specifically designed programs of activity and movement. We utilize this ‘Best Practice’ as the basis for virtually all of our patient care.
