Myofascial release is a hands on approach to treating the whole body. Even though the symptoms you may have are located in your back for example, your foot, hips and leg position as well as shoulder positions may have a direct effect on the back. Treating just the back may help temporary unless the rest of the body is not addressed.
McKenzie Back Specialty
McKenzie technique is a patient directed process based on your subjective complaints and repeated movement testing. By the end of the evaluation your treatment is based on what makes the pain better. It includes self treatment techniques, therapist’s techniques and back education.
Mobilization with Movement manual therapy techniques were discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan F.N.Z.S.P. (Hon), Dip. M.T., Wellington, New Zealand. Mobilization with movement is a manual therapy approach utilized by health care practitioners specializing in the care of patient with musculoskeletal pain. Physiotherapists, physical therapists, and other clinicians trained in the Mulligan Concept can assist individuals in improving movement restrictions, pain with movement, and functional restrictions. Mulligan practitioners seek to improve patient’s movement with the application of pain free hands on techniques. Both the clinician and the patient can quickly assess the value of this approach. If the technique(s) are indicated an immediate improvement in pain and movement will be observed. The Mulligan Concept is not a passive treatment approach and many individuals benefit from self-treatment at home. This simple yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain.
