Musculoskeletal Therapy

What is Musculoskeletal Therapy?

Musculoskeletal Therapy is a therapy designed to treat the muscles and skeletal system using various soft tissue and mobilisation (not manipulation) techniques.

Used in the treatment and the rehabilitation of back pain, neck pain, joint pain, muscular dysfunction and/or injuries, musculoskeletal techniques incorporate a varied amount of “hands on” remedial and mobilisation techniques as well as home stretching and strengthening exercises. This assists in maintaining functional alignment of the skeletal system.
