Manual Therapy / Treatment at ATS – Westside
ATS utilizes an eclectic approach, with influence from Maitland, Cyriax, Mckenzie and Mulligan. ATS clinicians use a treatment modality called manual therapy for most of our patients. Manual therapy usually includes, but is not limited to:
- Joint Mobilization/Manipulation – A direct mobilization technique to the affected and symptomatic joint to address pain and stiffness from restrictions.
- Soft Tissue Mobilization – techniques performed to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and capsules to eliminate spasm, trigger points, adhesions (scar tissue) resulting in restored normal tissue length or diminished pain/soft tissue restrictions.
- Neurodynamics (Neural Mobilization) – specialized mobilization techniques to restore normal gliding and flexibility of potentially irritable nerve tissue.
