Hands-on Manual Therapy

Our skilled therapist will target your problem area with personalized hands-on treatment. This may include:

  • Joint mobilization (think massage but for your joints not muscles)
  • Joint manipulation (helps free up your joints and stimulates your nervous system)
  • Soft tissue mobilization (Specialized massage for your muscles, ligaments and tendons to revive your tissues)

Manual therapy is a general term used to described highly skilled techniques that are used to improve the movement of joints and soft tissue like muscles and fascia.

They are carefully applied to these tissues to achieve one or more of the following goals:

  • For pain relief
  • For relaxation
  • To reduce swelling & inflammation
  • To increase the mobility of a joint(s)
  • To improve muscle flexibility
  • To improve motion
  • For scar or restriction release
  • To improved mobility of nerves
  • To facilitate better movement of the spine, upper extremity (shoulder, elbow, wrist hand/fingers), or lower extremity (hips, knees, ankles, feet)

Common Manual Therapy Techniques

Techniques may include soft tissue mobilization, traction, joint mobilization, joint manipulation, passive range of motion, movement with mobilization, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and more.

Manual therapy is an important component of the rehabilitation process for many of our patients. If you are looking for a practitioner that performs specific manual therapy treatment techniques, please call us for more information.

Our Patients Are Thriving
  • Hands-on therapy was well targeted and successful. Exercises were well chosen and helped. Staff is cheerful, helpful and courteous. Insurance matters were well covered and did not become my headache at all. My future patronage will be limited by my location only. I’m convinced Dr. Monterrey has the knowledge and hands to significantly help most that walk through his door.

  • When I came to Revive, I was in considerable discomfort and barely able to walk or sleep through the night without pain. Now I am back to regular walking, going to the gym, and sleeping well – Without discomfort! With Dalton’s skill and guidance, I have improved remarkably. I feel strong and confident as I return to my regular habits of walking and preparing for an upcoming trek. Thank you for everything Dalton, Darius, and Revive! I’d recommend you to anyone!

  • Saeed and his crew have greatly improved my hips and back. I have used all the exercises to continue the strengthening process. When I started therapy, I was in pain most of the day from walking to getting up from a sitting position. I learned what exercises to do to strengthen my muscles and improve my condition. Hopefully I will continue to improve. I am sincerely thankful for their knowledge and assistance. Their encouragement is so helpful.
