Manual Therapy

Our therapists utilize a wide variety of manual therapy techniques including

These techniques are utilized to decrease pain, increase joint motion, reduce muscle spasm, increase flexibility, reduce scar tissue, and increase mobility.

Flexibility

Our therapists assist in improving muscle length and appropriate hip motion, key ingredients in creating smooth and coordinated movement at the hip.

Strengthening

As a component of the physical therapy session, the therapist may choose to add strengthening exercises. AIM Physical Therapy utilizes state-of-the-art strengthening equipment in a quiet, calm atmosphere. In addition, the therapist may recommend home exercises so that the patient can continue to work as an integral team member to gain independence and return to function.
