What is Manual Ligament Therapy?

Manual Ligament Therapy(MLT) is a medically tested manual therapy technique utilizing the sensory qualities of ligaments to correct muscular imbalance and dysfunction. MLT is used by Physical Therapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors and Massage Therapists treating the body from the inside instead of treating the body superficially.
