Manual Therapy

Our goal is to identify the source of your pain or tension and to treat it effectively in order to bring you relief. After a thorough initial evaluation, highly skilled and trained physical therapists at Wave Physical Therapy, may use various manual therapy techniques in the treatment sessions to assist a patient with decreasing pain, restoring ideal mobility in the joint and normalizing muscle tension.

This therapeutic approach includes a skilled application of hands-on techniques like joint and soft tissue mobilization, massage, guided exercises and stretches to improve your range of motion. With an understanding of anatomy & physiology, we tailor every session to your needs, focusing on injuries and the areas experiencing discomfort as well as on other areas that might be contributing to your symptoms.
