Manual- and Manipulative Therapy is a form of hands-on treatment where a physiotherapist trained in advanced hands-on evaluation and treatment, carefully moves the tissues and joints of the spine or extremities to restore movement, reduce muscle tightness, reduce pain and improve function.
Research studies indicate that this treatment is essential for recovery from many musculoskeletal issues and injury types.
The goal of manual therapy is to treat the neuro-orthopaedic aspect of the patient’s condition. The application of this treatment addresses the condition directly, rather than just its symptoms. Manual therapy involves the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal system using specialized movements applied by a trained professional.
Manual and Manipulative therapy is effective in regions throughout the body. FCAMPT physiotherapists undergo extensive training following graduation from their entry-level physiotherapy programs in the area of orthopaedics and hands-on therapy. This research-based training helps our patients get better, recover faster and stay healthier to return to pain-free living.
