Manual Therapy is a collection of hands on physio. It consists of graded techniques in which passive movements are skillfully applied to carefully reduce pain. This also restores normal mobility to the joints and the surrounding soft tissues.
The therapist´s movement of the joint is very precise. It is a carefully graded system for reducing pain and restoring normal movement to the joints, soft-tissues and nervous system.  The system includes stretching, slow movements such as mobilisation and quick movements such as manipulation. It is available in this sports injury clinic.

It involves mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, manipulation and other related techniques. For further information on manual therapy please click buttons below.

Before any manual therapy or massage is initiated our physios will complete a comprehensive subjective history allowing for continuous clinical-reasoning that is followed with a thorough physical examination.

These techniques are utilised to improve physiological function and range of motion at joints. Other manual techniques include soft tissue mobilisation, manual stretching and neural glides.

All chartered physiotherapists at Southside Physiotherapy Clinic can help relieve a wide range of painful conditions. Martina Cloonan, Anne Gibney, Germaine Mallin and Helen Walsh have advanced skills in treating musculoskeletal problems. In conjunction with manual, hands –on therapeutic techniques these physios will also provide corrective exercise regimes to facilitate an early return to function and sport.
