Your MSPT therapist uses observation and palpation to measure flexibility, strength, balance and coordination. Asymmetry and faulty biomechanics can lead to restricted motion and pain. Manual therapy techniques such as joint mobilization, isometric facilitation and neuromuscular re-education can effectively free up restrictions and abolish symptoms. Physical therapy procedures are specifically designed to enhance the home exercise and postural retraining programs that allow you to independently manage your condition.
