Alleviate your pain and get back to enjoying your life.
Many people come to Physical Therapy for an injury or pain in their soft tissue such as a muscle, tendon or ligament commonly referred to as sprains, or strains (pulled or torn). Bone or joint issues such as a fracture, bone bruise, arthritis, degeneration, dislocation, or stenosis in the spine are other common reasons people seek help. These conditions may be caused by a sports injury, a fall, overuse, or may seem to come out of nowhere. Pain may be acute, lasting less than 3 months, or chronic, lasting more than 3 months.
Other times, people come in because they are having trouble with their balance or coordination. Maybe they’ve fallen recently or just don’t feel as secure as they once did when walking or participating in their usual activities, such as running, tennis, swimming or yoga.
What is the biggest mistake you can make if you have pain?
The biggest mistake you can make is to ignore your pain, or think you can just rest and it will go away. While a short period of rest may be appropriate, ignoring your pain is often a recipe for your pain to become chronic, more difficult to treat, and you may develop other issues while compensating for the original issue.
What happens when you come in to The Manual Touch?
Your therapist will use a Whole Body Approach to evaluate you and determine the root causes of your condition. Then, you’ll be prescribed a unique treatment plan using traditional and non-traditional manual therapy and exercises. You’ll learn how to move appropriately throughout your day and night, so as not to aggravate your condition. Our ultimate goal is to help you reclaim function, life, movement, and enjoyment of the activities you love.
