Manipulative and Sports Physiotherapy

Manipulative Physiotherapy

Manipulative physiotherapy refers to the use of high velocity thrust techniques in order to manipulate a restricted or stiff joint and restore the normal range of movement to that joint. There is often an associated ´popping´ or ´clicking´ noise with these techniques. Theoretically, any joint can be manipulated but with Move Well Physiotherapists manipulation is only used when necessary and when the patient is comfortable with having the technique performed.

It is worth noting that manipulation forms only one aspect of manual therapy and that Move Well physiotherapists undergo intense continuing education to ensure that all their manual therapy techniques are up-to-date and refined. All Move Well Physiotherapists attend regular group sessions to practice high velocity thrust techniques under the supervision of a Specialist Musculo-skeletal Physiotherapist.
