Manual Therapy and Mobilization

Manual therapy is the skilled application of passive movement to the joint, or the soft tissue surrounding it, within (Mobilization) or beyond (Manipulation) the active range of motion of the joint. Manual therapy can be applied to joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles or nerves to reduce pain and increase range and quality of joint movement. It also tends to improve nerve mobility, increase muscle flexibility and restore normal function.

     You will be asked specific questions and multiple safety tests will be performed to ensure that manipulation is a safe and appropriate treatment choice. You will be informed of the techniques and potential side effects prior to treatment inception.  Our therapists have undergone specific post-graduate studies/courses in advanced manual therapy to ensure an accurate and sufficient implementation of new techniques in treating injuries and their underlying causes.

Education

Education is at the forefront of our practice at York-Med. Learning about your own body/injury is the first and most important step in the rehabilitation process. You can be sure that you will be informed and educated in every step of your assessment and treatment. We believe in empowering our patients through education to prevent re-injuries and faster recovery; there are no wrong questions when it comes to your health.

     Searching the internet is a good starting point to learn about the nature of your injury, but it is not a reliable source for self-diagnosis and treatment. Therefore, it is vital to seek a healthcare professional to assess your condition and provide a personalized treatment plan specific to your individual needs.
