Manual Therapy


Manual Therapy Can Help You Find Pain Relief!

Pain can feel like an uninvited guest that simply refuses to leave. Whether it’s a lingering discomfort or a chronic condition that impairs your daily activities, the persistence of pain can dramatically impact your quality of life. But what if we told you that relief is within reach? Manual therapy, a hands-on approach in physical therapy, can provide a pathway to pain relief and improved functionality.

Manual therapy is an essential component of an overall treatment plan to manage pain, improve range of motion and flexibility. People suffering from conditions like lower back pain, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and even migraines often report significant relief after a regimen of manual therapy.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 20.4% (50.0 million) of U.S. adults have chronic pain. The impact of chronic pain is significantly higher among the following:

  • Women
  • Older adults
  • Previously (but not currently) employed adults
  • Adults living in poverty
  • Adults with public health insurance
  • Rural residents

That’s a significant portion of our population contending with conditions that lead to pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving, which could severely impact a person’s mobility and independence over time. Fortunately, manual therapy can help you manage and even alleviate your pain.

At Hernandez Therapy Clinic in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we believe in empowering you to live a pain-free life. Our team of highly skilled physical therapists is equipped with the expertise to help manage and alleviate your pain conditions through personalized manual therapy sessions.

Common Conditions Treated with Manual Therapy

As a crucial part of comprehensive healthcare, physical therapy provides effective, non-invasive treatment methods for common painful conditions. It empowers individuals to reclaim their quality of life, promoting functionality, movement, and pain reduction.

The most common conditions that benefit from physical therapy include the following:

  • Back Pain: A widespread issue affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point in their lives, back pain can be chronic or acute. Physical therapists employ spinal manipulation, exercise, and patient education to help manage and reduce this debilitating condition.
  • Neck Pain: Issues like poor posture, stress, or injuries can lead to neck pain, limited mobility, and pain affecting daily activities. Physical therapy aims to relieve pain, improve posture, and strengthen muscles in the area.
  • Arthritis: This common inflammatory disorder affects the joints, causing pain and stiffness. Physical therapists design individualized exercise programs to reduce discomfort, improve mobility, and slow disease progression.
  • Sports Injuries: Sports injuries can happen to athletes of all levels, from sprains and fractures to strains and tears. A physical therapist provides rehabilitation, advice, and exercises to promote healing and prevent further injuries.
  • Post-operative Rehabilitation: After surgery, physical therapy is a key component in speeding up recovery, improving mobility, and regaining strength. It’s particularly essential after orthopedic surgeries like hip and knee replacements.

By harnessing the power of physical therapy, you can face these conditions head-on, gradually reclaiming the pain-free life you deserve. With trained professionals ready to guide you every step of the way, the journey to recovery is much smoother.

How Manual Therapy at Hernandez Therapy Clinic Can Help Your Pain!

At Hernandez Therapy Clinic, we strive to alleviate pain and improve quality of life using proven hands-on manual therapy techniques. Our physical therapists work diligently to identify the root causes of your pain and deliver personalized, effective treatments.

Our evaluations start with understanding your medical history, which paints a detailed picture of your past illnesses, injuries, and lifestyle factors that could influence your present condition. We’ll ask questions that ensure your individual experiences and circumstances are understood.

Next, our therapists use their skilled hands to assess your muscle strength, joint flexibility, nerve function, and other physical aspects related to your discomfort. Through these examinations, we can pinpoint areas of concern that need targeted intervention.

Once your assessment is complete, our therapists design a manual therapy treatment plan that best fits your unique needs. Manual therapy encompasses a variety of techniques, and the treatments chosen are determined by what your situation needs, including:

  • Soft Tissue Mobilization: This technique is where therapists apply pressure to your muscles, promoting circulation and easing muscle tension.
  • Joint Mobilization: This treatment involves gently moving your joints in specific ways to reduce pain and increase your range of motion.
  • Manual Traction: Our therapists gently pull your bones to improve alignment and reduce pain.

Research has repeatedly shown that these manual therapy techniques help reduce pain and enhance overall function. It’s not just about temporary relief – it’s about teaching your body to heal itself and prevent future pain.

Our aim at Hernandez Therapy Clinic is to empower you with the knowledge and tools you need to lead a pain-free life. Don’t let pain dictate your life any longer!
