Q:What is manual therapy?
A:Manual Physiotherapy is a systematic, problem-solving approach to patient treatment that has a sound scientific and clinical basis. The manual therapist provides comprehensive conservative management for spinal, extremity and temporomandibular joint neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction. Manual therapy is a specialization within the physiotherapy profession. Manipulative therapy falls within the scope of practice of manual therapy as one treatment approach or collection of techniques. Canada is known as a leader in the area of orthopaedic manual and manipulative physiotherapy implementing an integrated approach (including such well known and respected philosophies as those of Cyriax, Grieve, Kaltenborn, and Maitland). A stringent post-graduate education process is well-respected within the field and among different professions. Please follow the link to Manual Therapy Defined in the FYI section.
