Orthopedic refers to the treatment of the neuromusculoskeletal system: the spine, nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, and related structures that provide the body with sensation, support or movement. Orthopedic Manual Therapy is a clinical approach to utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques to joints and soft tissue at various speeds and amplitudes to alleviate pain.
With these clinical approaches, patients can see improvement in pain, an increased range of motion, reduced soft tissue inflammation, and overall improved function.
