Manual Therapy at MetroMD

Posted on November 27, 2018 by: Metro MD

Manual physical therapy is important to correct issues in the body caused by injury, overuse or overwork, prolonged poor posture. Examples are restricted connective tissue, tightened or knotted muscles, swollen joints, and misaligned joints, all of which can cause pain, restricted mobility, and function. Having a manual therapist skilled with techniques to physically correct and aide in the healing of these problems, results in more successful and quicker recoveries.

Using cupping therapy along with other physical stretches and movements your body can recover and become trained in proper posture. These treatments are very helpful in releasing fascia, a connective tissue that envelopes every muscle, nerve, blood vessel and ligament fiber of the body. Fascia can tend to thicken, tighten and restrict in response to inflammation, injury, or mechanical stress. This can be very painful and can cause long-term discomfort.
