What Is Chiropractic Manual Therapy?
Chiropractic manual therapy is a non-invasive method of treatment, where WIN Chiropractors use their hands to address concerns with muscles and joints at our Niagara Falls clinic.
Our WIN Chiropractors also consider themselves manual therapists.
They use their hands to assess and test certain areas of concern related to the musculoskeletal and nervous system.
Based on their assessment and findings, they then can treat areas of concern with specific techniques using their hands. They can work on areas of restricted muscle, fasica or joint mobility. Manual therapy can also help scar tissue, calcified or calloused areas.
This therapy can also enhance blood flow to the area of concern, and fresh blood to the muscles and tissue can speed healing time.
