Manual and Manipulative Therapy

Manipulative Therapy is extremely effective in treating muscle, joint and nerve conditions from head to toe. These include headaches, neck and shoulder pain, low back pain, sacroiliac joint and pelvic dysfunction, hip and knee arthritis, foot and ankle pain among many other conditions.

All physiotherapists use specifically tailored exercise to treat pain and stiffness. In addition to exercise, Manipulative Physiotherapists are trained at using their hands to diagnose and treat restrictions in movement in the spine, arms and legs. Using gentle, hands-on techniques, we can help reduce muscle tightness, improve movement in the joints, reduce pain and improve function.

Our members are all physiotherapists, who have chosen to focus their skills in the area of orthopaedics (muscle, nerve and joint problems). We treat our patients using manual therapy and specifically tailored exercise programs, along with other Physiotherapy modalities (acupuncture, ultrasound, etc).

In addition to our entry-level university education, Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapists have completed extensive, internationally recognized post-graduate education focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of complicated muscle and joint problems. This education consists of several years of ongoing courses and standardized examinations, or a return to university to complete a degree in Manipulative Therapy.
