Physiotherapy Treatments 

 

Manual therapy: 

Joint and soft tissue manipulation is proven to be effective 

  • To  improve the stiffness in the joints

  • Tightness of the muscles

  • Tightness in the tissues 

This also increases the blood supply to the areas, in turn causing pain relief. Although these treatments can increase pain initially, the benefits are seen within two days of the treatment. This results in improvement of symptoms. In combination with exercises this can improve the movements and pain.
