Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a fundamental core component of your path to wellness. It consists of skilled hand movements used to treat the joints, muscles and soft tissue throughout the body.

Your appointment begins with a thorough, initial assessment of your injury or concern, followed by an evidence-based treatment plan specific to your needs.

Benefits of Manual Therapy

  • Increased range of motion
  • Improved muscle function
  • Decreased pain
  • Improved tissue mobility
  • Reduction of soft tissue inflammation

Our leading edge team of Physiotherapists are expected to go beyond the basic Physiotherapy skills and work towards becoming Fellows of the Canadian Orthopaedic Manipulative Physiotherapists Association (FCAMPT). To achieve this designation they must have excellent manual skills and a thorough knowledge of assessment and treatment approaches for patients with orthopaedic problems.

Manual therapy treatment techniques can include specific joint mobilizations (skilled passive techniques utilized to improve motion and alignment of the joint), soft tissue techniques (various techniques to alter the tension in both the muscle and connective tissue), and manipulation (a high speed but low amplitude mobilization of a joint). Specific exercises are almost always used as an adjunct with manual therapy to maintain the treatment progress.
