By using the term “Manual Therapy”, we are referring to a specialised part of physical therapy that aims to manage neural-muscular-skeletal problems; therefore, problems affecting the myofascial, osteo-articular, or peripheral or central nervous systems will be taken into consideration.
Therapists must determine the cause of the problem based on clinical reasoning and analysis of the patient in a global context; this includes examining different parts of the body, considering the patient’s reported symptoms, and discussing their lifestyle habits.
In cases requiring surgical intervention, physical therapy plays an important role in the pre-operative period by helping the patient to achieve the best possible condition for undergoing surgery, and in the post-operative phase, because it facilitates the recovery of normal life and work-related capabilities.
The rehabilitative phase will be continuously supervised by Dr Capuano, following his indications or those of other qualified surgeons.
We emphasise the importance of having several professional figures who communicate with each other regularly in order to determine an appropriate and personalised treatment for every patient.
The use of manual techniques such as joint and nervous system mobilisation, myofascial treatment, individual therapeutic exercise programmes, analysis of motor dysfunction, central nervous system coordination and our close attention to pain management are the tools our therapists use in order to address problems correctly and with the active participation of the patient.
