QUICK QUESTIONS

Why does it For Play use manual therapy almost exclusively to treat patients?

The answer is simple – it’s proven to get you better, faster. By using hands on techniques, our therapists can actually feel restrictions and problem areas and use that immediate feedback to make adjustments to the patient's care. A machine is just not capable of pinpointing areas, or asking patients for feedback like a skilled set of hands. We also find that patients respond better to manual therapy techniques and comply more with treatment protocols.
