Manual Therapy

A Hands-On Healing Approach

Manual therapy, or palpation, is a hands-on approach to your joint, connective and nerve tissue, and fascial restrictions. Its purpose is to help joints and tissue to move, respond and align correctly again. Therapists at RHC are highly trained and skilled in the evaluative and treatment techniques that fall under the umbrella of manual therapy. Manual therapy techniques include:

  • Joint mobilization
  • High-velocity, low-amplitude thrust
  • Myofacial release
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Trigger point
  • Deep tissue massage

Palpation is an art that becomes invaluable when a therapist combines manual therapy skills with knowledge and experience. It takes a therapist years to become good with their hands. The therapists at RHC are among the top in their field when it comes to your combined treatment approach.
