A rehabilitative approach to chronic pain
The longer, 85 min, full Hendrickson Method ® Manual Therapy session allows more specific targeting of areas of pain, injury, and restrictions.
The longer session is especially beneficial for those working to break up restrictive scar tissue and chronic motion restrictions.
This session is also great for addressing
- active pain
- limited movement
- post-surgery recovery
- acute injury recovery
A unique feature of Hendrickson Method ® Manual Therapy is that it provides gentle care to the joints as well as to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It stimulates tissues that restore fluid inside the joints, improves range of motion, and promotes the growth of new cells. It helps strengthen muscles, relaxes chronically tight tissues, alleviates painful trigger points, and improves function throughout the nervous system.
Strokes are performed in gentle, rhythmic oscillations that mimic the flow of ocean waves.
This system of functional rehabilitation provides long-term benefits as it bring the body back to optimum function by addressing the source of the pain rather than just the symptoms.
