Manual Therapy

At Kamloops Physiotherapy all of our therapists have training in manual therapy. Manual therapy is a specialized technique used by physiotherapists to assess and treat movement and joint dysfunction in the body. Manual therapists do a detailed hands-on assessment of the muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves. They use the findings from their assessment to help make a treatment plan that may include hands-on movement techniques (e.g. joint mobilization/manipulation), muscle release techniques, soft tissue mobilization and neural mobilization techniques to treat restricted movement. Specific exercises are also prescribed to improve and control mobility.

Our physiotherapists have taken advanced training in manual therapy. Check out individual physiotherapists bios on the Team page to get more details on their training and certification.
