Musculoskeletal therapy treats the skeletal and muscular system using a variety of soft tissue and mobilisation techniques. Musculoskeletal therapists use mobilisation over manipulation, mobilisation being movement to increase range of movement, rather than the more sudden movements of manipulation. Musculoskeletal therapy may help prevent and alleviate pain, enhance movement and function and help in maintain the functional alignment of the skeletal system.
A musculoskeletal therapist will assess your condition and treat you in a holistic way. You may be prescribed a range of measures to get you back to your physical best. The hands-on techniques themselves are varied, and can include: muscle energy and neuromuscular techniques. Other holistic measures could include: a program of gentle exercise or stretching e.g. looking at your diet and nutrition or making you aware of your posture.Learn MoreOur Services
