What Is Chiropractic Manual Therapy?

Chiropractor Niagara Falls

Chiropractic manual therapy is a non-invasive method of treatment, where WIN Health chiropractors use their hands to address concerns with muscles and joints at WIN Health Performance Centre.

Our WIN Health Chiropractors are trained and seasoned manual therapists.

They use their hands to assess and test certain areas of concern related to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

Based on their assessment and findings, they then can treat areas of concern with specific techniques using their hands.  They will work on areas of restricted muscle, fascia or joint mobility.  Manual therapy can also help scar tissue, calcific or fibrotic areas of concern.

This therapy enhances blood flow to the area of concern, like muscles and ligaments.  This results in improved healing times.

Our Chiropractic Procedures


At our WIN Health Performance Centre and chiropractic clinic, in Niagara Falls, there are many ways we can help.  We start by discussing your musculoskeletal health concerns and find out what are the sources of your pain and your daily obstacles to being pain free.

We will discuss your musculoskeletal health concerns and find out what is preventing you from performing and feeling your best. For example, what may have caused this pain in your everyday life, or if you had a previous injury.  We will talk about what makes your symptoms better or worse.  We will also talk with you about other factors that may be contributing to the concern, like surgeries, medications or (repetitive) trauma.


We will assess your movements and any limitations you have.  We will use specific testing to discover “what” and “why” you are in pain.  These functional assessments are an important part of our approach. They help us determine which chiropractic therapies would work best for your situation.


You will receive an individualized treatment plan that is the best fit for you.  Chiropractic treatments aim to improve the function of an area of the body so you can move better and feel great.  We will work with you to provide an understanding about the goals of your treatment, the area it is helping and what benefits to expect.  We will guide you along your path to better health so you can reach your health goals.
