What Can Manual Therapy Treat?

Manual therapy is a group of hands-on techniques used by physical therapists to address various symptoms and conditions. At Fluid Health & Fitness, we specialize in a variety of manual therapy techniques to help our patients achieve optimal results.

Joint Manipulation

Joint manipulation is a manual therapy technique designed to increase range of motion, reduce muscle spasms and stretch fibrous connective tissue. This can be done using specific techniques and may help treat conditions such as headaches, shoulder impingement, back pain or tennis elbow. Our physical therapy services include joint manipulation techniques to help you feel better and move more freely.

Soft Tissue Work

Soft tissue work is an integral component of physical therapy. It can effectively treat conditions such as muscle strains, sprains and herniated discs. Our team at Fluid Health & Fitness is trained in various soft tissue techniques, including those that focus on manual therapy, to provide you with the best possible care.


Traction is a minimally invasive treatment option that helps decompress the spine after herniated discs or ruptured vertebrae. This reduces pain and allows patients to move around more freely. Our physical therapists can utilize either manual or mechanical traction to treat their clients, depending on the specific needs of each individual.

Range of Motion

Range of Motion is the extent to which a joint can move in different directions. This range may be restricted due to injury, disease, or lack of mobility due to inadequate rehabilitation exercises. At Fluid Health & Fitness, we offer telehealth physical therapy treatment options and corrective exercise solutions to help you regain and maintain a healthy range of motion.
