    What is manual therapy

    Manual therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. It is widely used for orthopedic conditions such as bone fractures, tendonitis, sprains, bursitis, muscle weakness, joint pain, sciatica, whiplash and movement disorders. Manual therapy can help relieve the discomfort associated with these conditions while correcting underlying imbalances or impairments to promote long-term healing.

    Advantages of manual therapy treatment at home

    Manual therapy has been shown to be effective not only in treating existing injuries, but also in reducing the risk of future injuries. When performed correctly, it can help improve musculoskeletal function and reduce pain associated with orthopedic conditions. Research has shown that manual physical therapy remains the first choice in the treatment of musculoskeletal impairments. For some people who undergo manual orthopedic treatment, it can provide immediate relief of symptoms, but in most cases, gradual improvement occurs over several sessions The following list highlights many of the common benefits patients:experience with manual orthopedic treatments:

    • Reduced stress on affected joints by restoring proper posture and mechanics
    • Restoration of range of motion by breaking down scar tissue caused by local inflammation
    • Improvement of arthrokinematics (movement between two joint surfaces)
    • Accelerated healing times due to improved blood flow and circulation to the affected area
    • Improved strength by relearning proper motor control, resulting in improved coordination/balance
    • Reduced voltage within specific neural structures
    • Relief of myofascial trigger points (knots) associated with chronic/persistent overuse syndromes.

    Why manual therapy with home visits

    Before and after a manual therapy treatment

    Before treatment with manual therapy

    Before your physiotherapist starts manual therapy, it is important that she collects information about your medical history. This helps the therapist get an idea of any medical conditions or medications that might affect your treatment plan. It can also reveal past or current injuries that may require additional attention during treatment. Your physical therapist:s will also discuss your goals for the session and the types of exercises you typically do at home related to your injury. If you have an accurate picture of all of these things, they can create the best treatment plan to help you recover from your injury quickly and easily.

    To get the most out of your manual therapy session, it is important that you arrive on time and in comfortable clothing that allows for unrestricted movement, such as athletic shorts with sporty shirts or leggings with tank tops/T-shirts without pockets. Shoes should be removed before the session begins so that feet are exposed throughout the session; socks may be left on if desired, but should not restrict mobility. Please also refrain from using perfume, as some people are sensitive to odors that may interfere with their treatment experience in Vienna.

    After treatment with manual therapy

    At the conclusion of a manual therapy session, it is always best to use ice after any soft tissue mobilization procedures such as massage or joint mobilization that were performed during the visit. Icing allows for a reduction of inflammation within structures after more intense joint manipulation/mobilization techniques used by our physical therapist:s during manual therapy treatments, so this is especially important to regulate muscle spasms, especially after more intense procedures such as tendon transfers where many muscles were specifically activated during treatment modalities. A simple option would be to place an ice mouse (cold packs) on the injured area for 10-15 minutes after treatment with manual hand techniques! However, how often one should perform this icing technique varies from case to case and depends on the condition.

    FAQ Manual Therapy

    Frequently asked questions about manual therapy

    Manual therapy is a form of physical therapy that skillfully uses manual techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, and stretching to treat mobility limitations, pain, postural imbalances, and restricted tissue tone that often accompany musculoskeletal conditions. Manual therapists generally combine evidence-based manual techniques with sound clinical reasoning and patient involvement to create an effective treatment plan.

    Manual therapy has been shown to help relieve symptoms associated with a variety of orthopedic conditions, including neck and shoulder pain, back pain, hip pain, knee pain, arthritis, tendonitis, spinal stenosis, herniated discs and other musculoskeletal problems. Through manual methods such as joint mobilization/manipulation/mobilization (M/M/M), soft tissue release (STR), muscle energy techniques (MET) and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), manual therapy helps restore normal range of motion to joints or soft tissues affected by injury or disease while providing much needed muscular relaxation.

    Anyone suffering from an orthopedic condition can benefit from manual therapy treatment. This includes individuals suffering from chronic pain due to failed back surgery or herniated discs for whom other treatments have failed to provide relief; individuals dealing with the aftermath of a work or car accident; anyone seeking relief from postural deformities due to post-operative protocols; even athletes:inside who need to maintain their active lifestyles can benefit from manual physical therapy in some cases.

    Manual therapists may use various manipulation techniques, such as thrust manipulation/mobilization (M/M), to increase joint range of motion and flexibility without overloading the tissues; thrust manipulations are supplemented with gentler stretches during sessions, depending on the patient's current needs. Soft tissue relaxation, also known as "active muscle stretching," can produce faster results than static stretching because dynamic movements help muscles relax more quickly during the treatment session; Muscle energy techniques involve slow contraction of muscles against gentle resistance followed by longer passive stretching positions to achieve maximum relaxation of muscle fibers involved in painful patterns; finally, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, which targets agonist muscles, allows for better coordination between agonist:Internally.

    Immediately after a session, you may experience temporary muscle soreness that usually lasts only a day, but will subside over time as your body becomes accustomed to the new movement patterns for optimal performance. Imagine going back to the gym after a break of several months - at first you may feel a slight discomfort until your body gets used to it again. While these immediate effects may vary for each individual, no major side effects have been reported or documented, but they should not last longer than three days, if they occur at all.* In addition, it is important for patients to remember that long-term results depend heavily on proper home exercise programs prescribed by physical therapists after a thorough professional assessment of your case.

    Yes! Numerous randomized controlled trials have found positive results using various forms of manual therapies alone or in combination with other treatment strategies in treating patients:with musculoskeletal impairments when compared to sham interventions or usual care strategies, with efficacy demonstrated over time in the context of specific studies conducted in humans rather than animals, resulting in higher quality outcomes unlike many other medical treatments available today. In addition, depending on prior understanding between the physical therapist(s) and patient(s) regarding the diagnosis at hand, decisions can be made that affect current treatments without unnecessarily trying arbitrary, diagnosis-blind approaches - ultimately saving both time and money!

    Currently, there do not appear to be significant risks associated with manual physical therapy interventions such as mobilizations/manipulations or myofascial release when properly applied within a specific range preferred by a licensed professional, provided there are no contraindications that would prevent safe treatment of impairments, when considering potential harm versus clinical benefit without overriding the ethical standards provided by the accepted practices established in our profession, and when continuing education is provided to ensure excellence in the quality of health care available through the profession.

    Some people may experience mild muscle soreness after treatment, but it usually subsides relatively quickly, if not disappearing overnight. If it persists beyond the first two days, further investigation outside of the initial course is advised to avoid unforeseen causes that further advance the recovery process*.
