Is manual therapy dead? Do you still use it? In this video, Andrew breaks down the importance of using a one-on-one, hands on approach.

1. Manual therapy provides a really important start point to set us up for success.

2. Patient expectation is a huge aspect when it comes to delivering healthcare and usually manual therapy fulfils some of that expectations. 

3. Though there are many explanations for how manual therapy techniques might work (breaking up scar tissue, trigger point modulation etc) we can explain most results through the phenomenon of neural modulation. Neural modulation states that we use a new input to the neurological system to effect a new output in the sensory experience. 

4. Manual therapy is important in setting us up for success in terms of providing a window of opportunity by reducing a pain or sensitisation output to then allow us to establish better movement through improving strength, movement control, movement efficiency etc for the people that...

4. Many runners develop injuries because they lack the capacity to tolerate these forces or simply do not have enough strength to tolerate 2-3x bodyweight of running force.
5. At MAT we assess the capacity of runners using objective assessments from the literature such as the Weight Bearing Lunge Test, Star Excursion Balance Test, Hop Testing as well as other Strength testing protocols.
6. This allows us to identify limitations or imbalances in the way our patients or clients move so as to...
