What is Manual Therapy and How often should I use Manual Therapy?

Manual therapy is an important aspect of physical health, providing relief from pain and discomfort.

Receiving manual therapy on a regular basis can help with the following:

  • Improve mobility
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Increase range of motion

With the right frequency, it can also provide long-term benefits that will keep you feeling better for years to come.

How often should I receive Manual Therapy?

As an estimate, you could benefit from receiving manual therapy at least once every two weeks in order to maximise its potential benefits and ensure your body stays healthy over time.

However, this is dependent on many things:

  • How often you exercise
  • The type of sport you play
  • The status of your health overall
  • Any acute injuries you have
  • Any chronic health conditions you have
  • Your financial and time commitments

The list goes on.

But why is it important for your health?

Manual therapy helps treat injuries and chronic health conditions

Receiving manual therapy regularly can help treat existing injuries or chronic conditions more effectively than other treatments alone.

Manual techniques like massage or joint mobilisation are designed to target specific areas of the body where tension has built up due to lack of movement or injury; this helps relieve pain while promoting healing through increased blood flow and improved flexibility in those areas, as well as surrounding muscles groups which may be compensating for weak spots elsewhere within the body.

By receiving treatment on a regular basis—at least twice per month—you are able give your body enough time between sessions for restorative processes without allowing too much time to pass, during which new issues could develop unnoticed until they become serious problems down the line.

Manual therapy can be preventative for future injuries

Consistent use of manual therapies offers preventative care against future injuries by helping strengthen weakened muscles before they have an opportunity to cause further damage when put under strain again later down the road.

This not only limits how often individuals need medical attention after suffering from acute problems but also reduces overall healthcare costs associated with treating them since prevention is usually cheaper than cure!


Finally, there’s nothing quite like having someone else take care your aches pains – even if just temporarily – so don’t forget about all those wonderful feel-good endorphins released during each session!

The average client could benefit from professional hands-on treatment at least once every two weeks in order reap the full benefits and achieve optimal physical health.
