Physical Therapist for Manual Therapy

Our physical therapists at AUC Physical Therapy have received extensive training in specialized hands-on manual therapy techniques from a wide variety of schools and instructors.

Techniques and Modalities

At AUC Therapy, our physiotherapy services are designed to meet your needs specifically. As such, we utilize a lot of different techniques to target your specific problem areas and encourage healing and strengthening in an effective manner.

Mostly, we utilize a range of movement therapies that work the problem area in a way that helps it build its strength without causing further issues.

One of the most basic techniques is the use of basic stretches. Nothing that’s too much for the affected body part, but it’s not enough to cause further damage. Stretches and exercises can include joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, or range of motion exercises all designed to move the affected part of your body and restore its natural capabilities.

Benefits of Manual Therapy

Physical therapy doesn’t seem complicated when you break it apart from an outside perspective. It’s mostly movement therapy. However, it has tremendous effects on your ability to heal, fight off pain, and prevent future injuries, and it can easily be a life-changing service.

The most commonly known way manual therapy can help is by accelerating the healing process. If you have been injured and lost some movement or capability in a limb or other part of your body, manual therapy can help you nudge the healing process along and get you back to normal life faster.

However, there are other benefits. Manual therapy can also help you prevent injuries. If you’re an athlete or someone else who is regularly exposed to injuries, manual therapy can make you less prone to injury. Improving flexibility and posture are both key points of manual therapy, and that will help you avoid many of the smaller, avoidable, injuries in the future.

Finally,  manual therapy can be crucial if you’re suffering from old age, a condition, or something similar that constantly puts your body under strain by helping you maintain your mobility

At AUC, we have a team of professional therapists on duty and dedicated to helping you recover regardless of your situation. Our team members will help you push through injuries and more to achieve long-lasting healing without making the situation worse, and they’ll create a custom treatment plan that is specifically designed to help with your situation. This ensures you get the treatment you need and nothing more to provide long-term and meaningful results.

Collaboration with Other Therapies

A cookie-cutter approach simply doesn’t work. Every injury, condition, and general need for therapy is different. Even the same injuries can’t be treated the same way.

That’s why we focus on taking a unique approach at AUC Therapy. We mix techniques between the various forms of physical therapy to create custom treatment plans based on your unique situation. You don’t get a cookie-cutter treatment plan. We put in the time and effort to ensure your problems are specifically targeted in ways that will provide meaningful change.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, injury, or similar issues, don’t just accept medication and other treatments. Contact AUC Therapy today.
