Manual therapy techniques are more injury or condition-oriented and focus on specific areas of the body. After an injury or even postural distortions, muscles, tendons and ligaments (Soft Tissue) tend to tighten up, restricting circulation, contributing to pain and decreasing joint movement leading to a Pain-Spasm cycle. With techniques such as soft tissue and joint mobilization, neuromuscular massage and myofascial release, Fyzical therapists manipulate soft tissue and connective tissue (sheath that covers bone and nerves) to restore motion and ease discomfort caused by muscle tightness and spasms. These techniques break the Pain-Spasm cycle there-by restoring functionality, coordination and freedom of movement.
