Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is the skilled application of hands-on-techniques including joint mobilization, peripheral and spinal manipulation, soft tissue techniques and neural mobilization to improve mobility, decrease pain and restore function.  These techniques often require considerable post-graduate schooling and evaluation to meet the high standards required by the Alberta Physiotherapy College and Association. Manual therapy techniques have substantial support in the research as an effective treatment tool for various musculoskeletal disorders.  All five of our physical therapists have pursued additional schooling in manual therapy.
