How We Treat,
What We Treat

THERAPIES USED

CONDITIONS TREATED
Below are some of the conditions treated at Seattle Manual Therapy. Contact us today and begin your process to healing and freedom from pain.

BACK PAIN

Relief for low back pain, mid back pain and upper back pain can be a reality. Disk problems, postural problems, limited movement and stuck vertebrae are conditions helped with the Trager Approach, Manual Therapy, Myofascial release, and other medical massage techniques.

NECK PAIN

Neck pain can exert itself suddenly or be a nagging presence aggravated by circumstances beyond our control. Often, there isn’t a way around long seated commutes and hours seated at desks. All too often posture is compromised by extended time spent at the computer and pain is the result. Neck pain can come suddenly, resultant of an auto accident and whiplash, sports injury, or even individual anatomy. Together, we can explore the origin of your neck pain and bring real relief using Trager and other manual therapy techniques.

HEADACHE

The causes of headache pain are diverse, accordingly we seek and treat the origin of the headache pain. Patients treated at Seattle Manual Therapy have found relief from the following kinds of headaches: tension, migraine, cervical, cluster, chronic, menstrual, and sinus related headaches. Neural, trigeminal, and sub occipital nerve headaches are also conditions that can be treated with various kinds of therapeutic massage techniques used at Seattle Manual Therapy.

TMJ Disorders

Local physicians, chiropractors, and dentists often refer patients to Seattle Manual Therapy because of Joe Rodin’s specific expertise in treating jaw misalignment, clicking, popping, and limited opening. He uses individualized intraoral and extra oral treatments, Trager Massage, and a diversity of Manual Therapy techniques.

FIBROMYALGIA and CHRONIC PAIN

Joe addresses fibromyalgia and other chronic pain syndromes, including, complex regional pain syndrome, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy. His methods have the benefit of gently reducing symptoms with a low risk of triggering common inflammatory flares.
