Manual Therapy

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

Manipulate physiotherapy 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, and foot and ankle pain.

Manual therapy is also known as manipulative physiotherapy.
