Manual Medicine in Los Angeles, California
Manual medicine is a specific type of diagnosis and treatment for musculoskeletal disorders. The field focuses on analysis through palpation, the process of using the hands to examine the body, as well as operator directed techniques, such as observing the body’s response to certain movements. Dr. Bryan MD has undergone additional education to become familiar with this area of medicine, and has also added other accredited medical professionals to the practice that are proficient in this approach.
Integrated Holistic Manual Therapy
As the musculoskeletal system encompasses all bodily joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and the structures supporting the neck, back, and limbs, disorders that affect this system often cause a wide range of pain or discomfort. It is essential that patients suffering from musculoskeletal disorders undergo personalized treatments in order to experience relief and benefit from a more active lifestyle.
While our practice supports the most notable forms of manual therapy, we also utilize aspects of integrative holistic medicine to produce the satisfying results. We work closely with you to choose the right treatment options based on your expectations, and this may include medical acupuncture, pain managements, or herbal medicine. The more traditional aspects of the therapy we provide include:
- Mobilization – Controlled articular and soft-tissues stretching that gradually improve bio-mechanical elasticity.
- Manipulation – Rapid rotational force that forces joints into articulation, and commonly creates an audible popping noise that is caused by the breakdown of gas bubbles that form during cavitation in between joints.
- Massage – Repetitive rubbing, kneading, and stripping of myofascial tissues to improve and enhance fluid dynamics.
