Manual Therapy/Manipulation

Manual Therapy is a tool that can be effectively used to get you out of pain and moving better. The International Federation of Orthopedic Manipulative Physical Therapists defines manual therapy techniques as: "Skilled hand movements intended to produce any or all of the following effects: improve tissue extensibility; increase range of motion of the joint complex; mobilize or manipulate soft tissues and joints; induce relaxation; change muscle function; modulate pain; and reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation or movement restriction." At Total Balance, we are highly trained at finding and utilizing manual techniques that facilitate getting you back to full function and getting you back to your normal daily activities. Whether you need your back "cracked" or your shoulder mobilized we are here to provide skilled hands-on care which will decrease pain and improve function.
