Manual therapy is a physical treatment primarily used by sports therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths, etc. to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability; it most commonly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilization and joint manipulation.
Sports therapists of BeyondPro apply the following techniques for the best treatment effects :
1. Joint mobilizations is a slower, more controlled process of articular and soft-tissue (myofascial)
stretching intended to improve bio-mechanical elasticity:
Grade I – small amplitude movement at the beginning of the available range of movement
Grade II – large amplitude movement at within the available range of movement
Grade III – large amplitude movement that reaches the end range of movement
Grade IV – small amplitude movement at the very end range of movement
2. Neuromuscular, Positional Release and Muscle Energy Techniques(MET) have all become well-regarded and established manual techniques. The theories of all of these methods strongly relate to the functional relationships of nervous system to the musculo-skeletal system and then how these particular relationships can be influenced, by the techniques, to effect improvements or normalization in problematic tissues. They are responding well to excessively tense musculature, restricted joint mobility, muscles/postural/biomechanical imbalances, supercial circulatory impairments, fibrosis and muscle flaccidity etc.
3. Connective tissues manipulations(deep friction techniques) is specifically applied to a lesion; rather it is used to release tension and to decongest areas more generally but still through specific regions at a time. It helps to break apart adhesions in the tissues and affects the body reflexively.
