Manual therapy may consist of one or all of these during a treatment consultation:
- Joint mobilisations
- Trigger point release (TPR)
- Assisted stretching
Our clinicians are highly skilled in all techniques and we prefer to adopt a “hands-on” approach whenever possible.
Some of these techniques like massage and TPR can elicit a mildly painful response from the body which is completely normal and beneficial to injured tissue. Please do not hesitate to ask us about this, especially if you are unsure about the concept of “good pain” vs “bad pain”.
At Stoddard Road Physiotherapy we passionately believe in educating each client on their condition and root cause of it, rather than just treating a painful or injured site. We also enjoy conveying our knowledge of the body, and if we digress or delve too deep then please remind us that not every client wants to know the finer details 😉
