Good qualities of tissues and their proper shape and form are present in the adaptive body to ensure proper function. An alteration in the alignment or motion of a body part will have effects on the surrounding tissues and how well they work.
Using Musculoskeletal Techniques the therapist focuses on the structural aspects of the body with an emphasis on its innate healing mechanisms.
While addressing the whole body, looking for an overall pattern of tension or restriction in movement, gentle yet highly effective techniques are used to find and treat the cause of the discomfort rather than treating only the symptoms. Therapists locate and address restrictions that are causing asymmetries, postural misalignment, abnormal tensions and pressures.
Musculoskeletal Therapy can help alleviate the following:
Chronic and acute pain and dysfunction

Chronic (low) back pain
