The intricate system that is the body, formed by our skeleton, muscles, soft tissue, organs, skin, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints, needs to be kept in top condition to function at its best.
Sometimes, through injury, poor upkeep, or just day-to-day living, our bodies start to feel pain which disrupts our daily activities. Musculoskeletal therapy may help in keeping pain at bay and treating injuries and functional problems.
Musculoskeletal therapy treats the skeletal and muscular system using a variety of soft tissue and mobilization techniques. Musculoskeletal therapists use mobilization over manipulation, mobilization being movement to increase range of movement, rather than the more sudden movements of manipulation.
An effective hands-on approach to pain relief, musculoskeletal therapy can lead to a significant reduction of pain in the back, neck or any kind of joint pain. If you suffer from chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia or frozen shoulder, you will benefit massively from consulting a musculoskeletal therapist.
