Benefits of Manual Therapy
Manual therapy is an ideal solution to problems in the connective tissue of your musculoskeletal system. It involves hands-on, therapeutic procedures designed to promote healing in your injured areas, improve blood flow, and provide relaxation.
The connective tissue in your body connects, separates, and supports your bones and muscles. Healthy connective tissue is critical to the proper functioning of your body. Your connective tissue holds muscle fibers in groups to make muscles and holds your muscles together. They also attach your muscles to your bones, your bones to other bones, your skin to fat, and fat to muscle.
Myofascial tissues are the thin tissues that cover all of your organs, muscles, and the fibers within each muscle in your body. When your muscle is damaged, both the fibers and the fascia become short and tight. Your nervous system can transfer this strain to other parts of your body, causing pain and many other symptoms.

Personalized Chiropractic Care
Your chiropractic doctor will work on the necessary parts of your body to deliver immediate pain relief and to help you feel better. Chiropractic therapy involves manual adjustments to your back, legs, hips, neck, head or other areas that need care to alleviate pain.
If you have experienced a tissue injury, it may restrict the movement of your joints. Damaged tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function.
If chiropractic care is part of your customized treatment plan, you may undergo a chiropractic adjustment, also called spinal manipulation. During this procedure, the doctor will manually adjust your bones to restore joint mobility. Manipulation, or adjustment, of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility and alieves pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal.
