Welcome to Sunrise Physical Therapy in Spruce Grove, where we blend the science of healing with the art of caring. Our specialized manual therapy services are designed to address a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, promoting recovery and enhancing overall well-being.
At Sunrise Physical Therapy, manual therapy, also known as manipulative therapy, is more than just a set of techniques; it embodies a comprehensive treatment philosophy. Our skilled therapists use their hands to apply pressure on muscular tissue and manipulate joints. This hands-on approach is integral to alleviating pain stemming from conditions like muscle spasms, muscle tightness, and joint dysfunctions.
Soft Tissue Mobilization
This technique involves therapeutic massage, stretching, and compression to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and increase flexibility in the soft tissues such as tendons, muscles, and ligaments.
A method where a gentle force is applied to stretch the spine. This can be specifically beneficial for patients with neck or back pain, helping to alleviate pressure on the spine and improve comfort.
Joint Mobilization and Manipulation
Our therapists use controlled movements to loosen tight tissues around joints, improve alignment, and enhance overall function. Joint manipulation can provide rapid relief from pain and improve the range of motion.
Passive Range of Motion
We gently move your joints through their range of motion when movement is limited due to injury, surgery, or a health condition. This helps maintain joint flexibility and prevents stiffness.
Movement with Mobilization
Combining active movement with joint mobilization, this technique helps restore function and reduces pain in affected areas.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
A more advanced form of stretching that is used in enhancing the active and passive range of motion with the ultimate goal of improving functional performance.
