Are you suffering from back pain in the Boca Raton, FL area? At Physioactive Physical Therapy & Wellness Center, our experts are available to help relieve that pain to improve your overall quality of life. A popular service we offer is Manual Therapy. We’ve helped many in the Boca Raton area feel better by relieving their pain with this proven treatment.
Some physical therapy involves the manipulation of muscles and bones using a machine, however manual therapy delivers this treatment by the hands from one of our skilled providers. Their “hands-on” approach puts pressure on muscles and manipulates joints. The goal is to decrease your back pain. This method is advantageous if your pain is caused by muscle tension, joint dysfunction, or muscle spasms.
In addition, if you have joints that don’t quite have the range of motion they used to have, manual therapy may be right for you. You may be limited in your range of motion because of pain or discomfort. As a result, it could affect your movement, posture, and day to day function of that joint. Our specialists’ aim is to restore your stiff joints to their previous mobility and to relax the muscles around them, so you can move naturally without pain. Manual therapy has been shown to help relieve pain associated with chronic back pain or as the result of a soft tissue injury.
Our manual therapy specialists tend to employ these techniques when treating you at our clinic:
Soft Tissue Work – They will apply pressure to the soft tissues areas of the body. This would include muscles and ligaments. This technique helps relax muscles, breaks up scar tissue, increases circulation, and will ease the pain in the soft tissue areas. A massage is generally associated with this treatment.
Mobilization/manipulation – This technique used by our specialists uses measured movements on your joints. These movements can be fast or slow as well as gentle or forcible. They can also pull, push, or twist bones back into position. Ideally, this will help with your alignment, flexibility, and reduce joint paint.
While manual therapy is available to all physical therapists, many don’t utilize it. It takes quite a bit of time and education to become genuinely efficient with this technique. Being relatively uncommon, manual therapy isn’t usually prescribed by doctors. Also, insurances may be hesitant to cover this treatment. We suggest checking with your insurance to see if they include this type of treatment and we will do our best to provide them with all of the paperwork needed to get their approval.
Primary care doctors, an orthopedic surgeon, or a back-pain specialist are the most likely people to refer you to our center for manual therapy for your pain. Depending on the type of insurance you currently have, you may need a written referral from them first.
