At Movement Solutions Physiotherapy we utilize a hands-on manual therapy approach coupled with a specific and directed exercise prescription to restore movement and alleviate pain. We strive to educate the patient regarding both their injury and the steps needed to recover. The more educated a patient is the more empowered they are to fully participate in their own rehabilitation.
The International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapists defines manual therapy as follows:
Orthopaedic Manual Therapy is a specialized area of physiotherapy / physical therapy for the management of neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions, based on clinical reasoning, using highly specific treatment approaches including manual techniques and therapeutic exercises.
Orthopaedic Manual Therapy also encompasses, and is driven by, the available scientific and clinical evidence and the biopsychosocial framework of each individual patient.
