Manual Therapy

Within the physiotherapy profession, manual therapy is defined as a clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques, including but not limited to manipulation and mobilization. This is used by the physiotherapist to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of:

  • modulating pain;
  • increasing range of motion (ROM);
  • reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation;
  • inducing relaxation; improving contractile and non-contractile tissue¬† repair, extensibility, and/or stability;
  • facilitating movement;
  • improving function
