What are Manual Techniques?
Manual Techniques are often preferred treatments for both health care professionals and patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Techniques range from joint mobilisations to manipulations. These techniques have been proven to assist with the recovery of some musculoskeletal conditions, however only when combined with a prescribed exercise, targeting the area what is causing your symptoms.
Some of the effects from manual techniques are short term, this is evidenced throughout literature in physiotherapy journals, however it does enable a window of opportunity of reduced symptoms which allows for more effect treatments to be carried out.
