What is manual therapy

It is difficult to meet a person who would never complain of back pain. Almost everyone at least once grabbed his lower back after a seemingly insignificant load. Alas, scoliosis and impaired posture meet us at the school bench and accompany us all our lives. Every year, the risk of getting more and more unpleasant disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which impedes active enjoyment of life, or even threatens to completely deprive of work capacity, increases.

Long before our era, Hippocrates himself noted the importance of spinal therapy, rightly believing that competent and mild treatment will defeat many diseases.

Of course, over the past millennia, manual therapy has taken a huge step forward. Now it is recognized and appreciated in the same way as orthopedics, neurology and neurophysiology, whose best achievements are combined and used by manual therapists.

In his work, the chiropractor must understand what exactly causes the patient back pain, and on the basis of the diagnosis, prescribe and conduct therapeutic measures. They usually consist in restoring joint mobility and eliminating circulatory disorders. This is achieved with the help of special manual techniques, both soft and very intense.

Unlike massage therapists, a chiropractor is a doctor with an appropriate education. He does not limit himself to working exclusively with soft tissues, but fully affects the damaged area, eliminating violations of the skeleton, joints, vertebrae and intervertebral discs.

As practice shows, this approach allows in many cases to eliminate painful sensations and achieve a noticeable positive effect in a very short time, literally in one or two sessions.

Manual therapy is shown, first of all, in the following cases:

  • Osteochondrosis
  • Pathology of the cervical spine
  • Vegetative-visceral disorders
  • Herniated disc
  • Scoliosis, violation of posture
  • Arthrosis
  • Intercostal neuralgia
  • Frequent headache
  • Rehabilitation after injuries and illnesses
  • Muscle pain
  • Chronic fatigue
