Manual Therapy

Once Dr. Pesale has examined you to pinpoint the source of your pain, he will determine which treatment will benefit you most. Manual therapy involves hands-on techniques to diagnose, assess and treat the joints or soft tissues.  Chances are, some form of a manual therapy regimen will be incorporated into your ongoing personalized treatment plan.

Manual therapy can be applied to the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, upper extremities and lower extremities.

I have never experienced a fair appointment, it has always been excellent! I’ve have told many people I know about the care I have received at Dr. Pesale’s office.

Benefits of Manual Therapy

Manual therapy delivered as part of your chiropractic treatment plan can provide significant benefit to your level of pain and range of motion. Primary benefits include pain reduction, improved joint mobility, restoration of injured tissues to normal function, improved strength and control.


Some patients require, as part of their therapy, the active movement, or “mobilization” or stretching of a joint beyond a point they are able to achieve in their current unaided course of movement. By assisting the patient in moving their joints in this manner, Dr. Pesale is able to gradually achieve a better range of motion for the joint over time.
