About Manual Therapy
Manual Therapy Is 100% Hands-On
At Bridging The Gap, we don’t use MRIs or x-rays to find out the root cause of your discomfort. We don’t rely on machinery like treadmills or electrical muscle stimulation to do our work for us. Our hands are the only tools we need. By literally feeling out the problem rather than just glancing at your scans, we get an accurate idea of how we can best help you to a fast, pain-free recovery with improved motion, decreased scar tissue, and reduced inflammation.
Manual Therapy Techniques
Learn how our techniques can help you.
Myofascial (my-oh-FASH-e-ul) Release is a technique used to decrease tension and improve mobility. Focusing on separating fascia—the tissue covering your muscles—from muscle, the physical therapist will apply pressure to loosen restricted muscles and cause immediate relief.
Trigger Point Release involves a physical therapist applying pressure to a taut band within a muscle. This pressure releases the trigger point to reduce pain and improve muscle contractability.
