At John Goetze Physical Therapy of Jacksonville Beach, we specialize in functional manual physical therapy.

Functional Manual Therapy is a trademark of the Institute of Physical Art, Inc. This highly skilled method requires a significant amount of post-graduate training and utilizes a hands-on approach to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures, returning your body to more natural movement without pain.

Manual physical therapy can reduce or eliminate soft tissue inflammation; induce relaxation; improve tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability; facilitate movement; and improve function. It provides for treatment of a wide variety of ailments and dysfunctions such as pain relief both for patients with chronic back pain or acute back pain involving joint problems, such as sacroiliac joint dysfunction or osteoarthritis, and soft tissue injuries such as a back muscle strain or a pulled back ligament.
