How Front Runner Physiotherapy is changing Manual Therapy for York, Pa.

Far too often, manual therapy is hyped up by flashy, fancy, gadgets or gimmick tools, many of these devices you can buy yourself! These tools are marketed to make you believe that you can heal faster and quicker. When you receive manual therapy from us, you will never see us using massage guns, scented oils, or any device that you can buy and use on yourself! Front Runner Physiotherapy is leading the South Central Pennsylvania area in manual therapy by taking a scientific approach and constantly measuring change with a consistent assessment before and after treatment along with in-between session changes. This is why all sessions are 1-on-1 and never utilize assistants or aides! If there is no assessing then there is only guessing. You don’t have time for guessing! You have goals you want to achieve and Front Runner Physiotherapy is here to get you back to those goals!  Contact us so that we can discuss how we use an individualized hands-on approach for the management of soft tissue injuries.
