Manual therapy is a highly skilled, hands-on approach which aims to improve normal body biomechanics by eliminating both the restrictions from soft tissue and stiff joints. The patient therefore receives instant improvement in movement, alignment and pain. The benefits of manual therapy address soft tissue adhesions, reducing inhibitions of fluids and nutrient exchange, decreasing joint stiffness and pain, improving tissue health and increasing mobility, reducing scar tissue formation, treating trigger points and decreasing muscle tightness and connective tissue such as fascia. UP Clinic uses the USA ARTH Method techniques including: Maitland,Mulligan, Myofascial Decompression, and IASTM. Manual therapy is especially important for those who suffer from restricted movement and pain, which are not relieved from medications or help from other health professionals.
