Manual therapy, which is one of the oldest and classical applications of medicine, is a treatment method that has been applied for thousands of years and many people find healing. Contrary to popular belief, this method is not a massage or alternative medicine method.

It is known that manual therapy is successfully applied in the treatment of spine problems such as scoliosis and kyphosis, elbow problems (golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow), fibromyalgia, hip disorders, shoulder and wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome). In neck and waist hernias, except for rare problems, surgery ceases to be the fate of people with manual therapy and successful results can be obtained at a rate of 90%.

What is Manual Therapy?

Manual therapy or treatment is a form of treatment that can be applied to all diseases related to the musculoskeletal system and is completely based on evidence-based medical information. In other words, manual therapy is applied in all diseases that include physical therapy.
