Background In PT

With a background in physical therapy, Dr. Magaziner has always believed in manual medicine. He utilizes a team approach in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. He commonly refers patients for physical therapy, chiropractic therapy, massage therapy or acupuncture when necessary.Manual Medicine and Manipulation
A joint can be either loose or hypermobile, normal, or stiff also known as hypomobile. Either extremes can be painful. For hypermobile problems we use the regeneration therapies. For a stuck or hypomobile joint you need to stretch it or manipulate it to normalize function.

Manual Medicine Treatment Plan

Using manual medicine and manipulation in the early stages of a treatment plan is helpful. Based upon a patient’s response to conservative care, Dr. Magaziner will formulate the most efficient interventional pain or regenerative medicine treatment plan that will provide the best possible clinical outcome.
Manual medicine is as old as the science and art of medicine itself. There is strong evidence of the use of manual medicine dating back to ancient Egypt and other cultures in antiquity. Today manual medicine is practiced by a wide variety of health care providers including osteopathic physicians, allopathic physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and athletic trainers. Depending on the patient’s complaints and medical history a wide variety of different manual treatments exist to restore pain free movement and balance to the musculoskeletal system.

Manipulation is a key practice performed in manual medicine used to restore proper postural balance of muscles, joints, and the body’s neural-musculoskeletal systems. It describes a treatment delivered to an identified orthopedic issue, such as a joint restriction or a soft tissue restriction, to restore normal, pain-free movement. Manipulation can also be used to describe a technique to restore motion of joints, muscles, and fascia. It may be used to restore motion to involved spinal joints but can also be used to any extremity joint such as the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, and ankle to name a few.

As each case is different, it is important for Dr. Magaziner to evaluate your condition before he recommends manual therapy or manipulation.
