Manual PT (hands-on physical therapy) is a very old branch of medicine that’s being honed to a fine science by physical therapists today.
Your physical therapist at TRI Physical Therapy center in Brooklyn can manipulate and move parts of your body in ways that reduce pain, improve range of motion, and encourage health and healing. The technique is usually used as a way to treat pain, but manual therapy can also be used to promote wellness or even help you reach your physical potential.
Manual physical therapy (PT) requires knowledge of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Touch and movement is used for diagnosis as well as for treatment. Your top rated PT specialist uses all of the traditional physical therapy tools: consultation, observation and specific analysis with a computer to craft a treatment plan that helps you either heal or improve your physical well-being.
