Manual Therapy in Vancouver
Manual Therapy has long been the mainstay of Physiotherapy at our clinic. It encompasses manual mobilization of joints, muscles, nerves and the fascia. Techniques include oscillatory, rocking movements and traction/distraction movements to the joints; stretching, massage, friction to the muscles and tendons; nerve mobility techniques, ligament frictions. As “manual’ implies, manual therapy is the “hands-on” treatment techniques aimed at mobilizing restricted joints and tissues, decreasing swelling and muscle tone, permitting the restoration of normal movement.
All our therapists at Dunbar Physio pride themselves on their “hands-on” approach to treatment.
