Advanced Manual Therapy

At Excite, we value hands-on treatment. We have dedicated years of post-graduate training to hone our hands-on skills to provide you with very specific and advanced manual therapy techniques.

How can manual therapy help?

Hands-on manual therapy is intended to produce any or all of the following effects:

  • improve tissue extensibility
  • increase range of motion of the joint complex
  • mobilize or manipulate soft tissues and joints
  • induce relaxation
  • change muscle function
  • modulate pain
  • and reduce soft tissue swelling
  • inflammation or movement restriction

Advanced manual treatment can affect muscles, joints, ligaments, and nerves.


Manual therapy techniques can include:

  • soft tissue and joint mobilization
  • joint manipulation
  • instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques (IASTM)
  • traction
  • massage
  • trigger point therapy
  • active release techniques (ART)

Active range of motion and passive range of motion, stretching, and nerve mobilization.

The joints of the Cervical (Neck), thoracic(mid-back), and lumbar spine (low back) are often at the heart of any injury. They can become stuck or stiff. Our specific hands-on techniques including mobilization and manipulation can ease joint and spine pain and restore movement and mobility.

Let the expert staff at Excite Physio ease your pain with advanced manual therapy.
