Comprehensive Manual Therapy

Manual Medicine for the Health of the Whole Body

Comprehensive Manual Therapy is a hands-on method of treatment whose purpose is to restore function in the body by finding and addressing the primary causes of pain and disease. There is an inextricable relationship between the structure and function of the body. The goal is to restore the position, mobility, and vitality to the structures of the body and allow it to return to a more natural, healthy state. Treatment can be directed toward health and maintenance, resolving specific issues such as injuries or degenerative changes, and enhancing athletic performance.

Our Approach

We pride ourselves on our commitment to one-on-one care.

Your practitioner will provide only the highest quality of care. Our staff is trained in a variety of techniques to help you on your road to recovery.

No matter what your condition, our qualified practitioners can design an individualized treatment protocol to address your needs.

Our practitioners are not physicians, D.O.s or licensed medical providers and our practice of manual therapy is not meant to serve as an alternative to appropriate conventional medical treatment. Instead it is complementary to it.

“I am the kind of person who pushes my body to its limits. Granted my limits are not Olympian. However, I know how to work too hard, play too hard, and inevitably hurt myself. I used to think pain was a normal part of living. I have had multiple surgeries and now live with a patchwork of scar tissue. Before I began working with David Schwartz, I had learned not to have high expectations of changing my body. Through his work, David has helped me live a fuller and healthier life.”
