Manual therapy is a hands-on treatment that uses joint mobilization, joint manipulation, and kneading and manipulation of muscles to reduce and eliminate musculoskeletal pain and disabilities. Manual therapy treatments vary depending on the style of manual therapy being performed, the condition being treated, and the body part undergoing treatment. Some techniques can be performed through clothes, while most will require direct hand-skin contact. Some treatments are very relaxing and passive, while others require more active participation from the patient, and yes, some are even somewhat painful in order to achieve the therapeutic effect.
