Manual therapy involves a hands-on approach to first discover the primary cause and source of the dysfunction/problem. Manual medicine offers a combination of manual therapy and exercise-based therapy. Having identified the root cause, steps are then taken to correct it. All four systems in the body unit can be manually manipulated to promote healing. Exercised-based therapy will complement the healing process as it guides the body through its normal range of everyday movement, sustaining the structural change achieved during therapy. This form of therapy has been proven to be a sustainable method for self-recovery and management.
