InTouch Manual Therapists are highly trained caring professionals who, as a part of the InTouch Team, are committed to helping you get back to a healthy life.
Manual therapy involves the use of many different soft tissue techniques and may be used as an individual treatment or part of an integrated care plan.
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. Trigger Point Therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.
With long fluid strokes the light to medium pressure helps relieve stress, reduce pain, and promote relaxation.
Deep Tissue Manual Therapy/Myofascial Release Therapy
Deep Tissue is similar to effleurage, but the technique focuses on the deepest layer of muscles and fascia to target knots and release chronic muscle tension. Myofascial release utilizes deep soft tissue release techniques. The goal of myofascial therapy is to release soft tissue adhesions that may develop following injury, surgery or any chronic inflammatory condition. Tissue adhesions disrupt normal tissue mobility and function. In addition to treatment in the clinic we will instruct you or a caregiver in home treatment to optimize your recovery and return to full function.
Sports Manual Therapy
For athletes of every kind, each therapeutic session is specific to your sport of choice, with focus on a particular troublesome area like a knee, hip or shoulder.
Pre and Postnatal Manual Therapy
An ideal therapeutic choice for pre and postnatal care, each manual therapy session differs based on your individual needs and requests.
