Manual Physiotherapists are highly trained at using their hands to diagnose and treat restrictions in movement of the spine and extremities. Using gentle, hands-on techniques, we can help improve movement of the joints, reduce muscle tightness, manage pain and improve function.
Physiotherapists are healthcare professionals devoted to understanding how and why movement improves function.
In addition to manual therapy, our physiotherapists use specifically tailored therapeutic exercise to assist in injury recovery and promote wellness. We also provide information and education to help you understand the nature of your problem and the proposed treatment plan.
By combining the principles of evidence-informed practice, evaluative skills, clinical and professional judgement, your physiotherapist will work closely with you, and often with other health care professionals, to ensure that your health goals are met.
