Manual Therapy

Because we go beyond "just exercise" – we aim to help you get better, faster.

It cannot be denied that exercise has an important role in the management of your health, especially exercise specifically tailored to your needs (and not just something generically given to you), it's important to know that our staff are highly trained in the delivery of hands-on interventions that include spinal mobilization and manipulation, joint mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue mobilization, and dry needling. Further, we won't just blindly throw interventions at you – we are constantly reassessing to ensure that what we deliver is something demonstrably helpful to you and your needs.


Manual interventions generally are used to address pain but may also affect how well you can recruit or engage musculature. As with virtually everything in medicine, there is some mixed evidence, but a great deal of literature has been published showing the benefits of manual therapy for things like neck pain, low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, ankle sprains, hip and knee osteoarthritis, plantarfasciitis, rotator cuff-related shoulder pain, and more. With the only board-certified Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists in the Western Tidewater and 1 of only 31 in the state of Virginia, we're here and ready to help!


For some diagnoses and conditions, periodic "booster" sessions of manual therapy can be beneficial to maintain activity levels and to potentially avoid surgery. For very active individuals, periodic treatments can be helpful to manage aches, pains, and soreness, keep you feeling strong, and keep you performing at a high level. 

Reach out to us with the contact form below – we're happy to discuss whatever you've been experiencing, as well as payment options. Many insurances cover manual therapy; however, for those without insurance, and for those with insurance plans with high deductibles and high out-of-pocket responsibilities, our self-pay rates and options often will cost you less than what many insurances have set for the billing rates.
