Manual Therapy

As a human physical therapist, Karen Atlas has studied many different manual therapy techniques.  She has learned how to adapt this knowledge and skill and now successfully applies these techniques to her four-legged patients.  Manual therapy consists of a variety of soft tissue and joint mobilizations, as well as passive range of motion exercises in order to:

  • Break up scar tissue

  • Decrease muscle spasms/contractures

  • Improve flexibility

  • Reduce edema and pain
