A clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques, including but not limited to manipulation/mobilization, used by physical therapists to diagnose and treat soft tissue and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain, increasing range of motion, reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation, including relaxation, improving contractile and non-tractile tissue repair, extensibility and or stability, facilitating movement and improving function.
