Manual therapy at Hasselberg Physiotherapy Practice

Physiotherapy with a professional physiotherapist

When treating functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system, physiotherapy benefits from the use of manual mobilisation and stabilisation techniques as these improve mobility, coordination, muscle power and elasticity.

Another goal in applying manual therapy is the correction or alleviation of incapacitating conditions by training and mastering more effective movement patterns.

Physiotherapy is a dynamic process. Controlled movement therapy applies a systematic and tailored treatment regime aimed at gradually increasing the body’s capacities and restoring normal physical function wherever possible.

Manipulation and mobilisation techniques in manual therapy alleviate pain, restore function and increase stability while identifying and treating dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system.

The course of treatment is supplemented by physiotherapy instructions aimed at achieving independence using a specific programme of exercises to combat pain and prevent further injury. The goal is to preserve the normal function of joints and associated functional and structural tissues.

Recommended treatment primarily for sub-acute / chronic non-specific lumbago.
