Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapy in Portsmouth, New Hampshire
What Does This Treatment Involve?
This isn't your typical Physical Therapy! Manual Therapy is a hands-on, full-body approach to Physical Therapy. We will spend your time in the clinic doing direct treatment, and give you corrective and supportive exercises to do on your own time at home. Our evaluation will discover the Root causes to your pain and movement impairments. The hand-on treatment targets resolving the soft tissue, joint, neural or visceral restrictions, paired with balancing the neuromuscular system by activating inhibited muscles and reducing tensions in the overactive muscles.
