Orthopedics deals with the correcting injuries or disorders impacting the skeletal system and associated joints, muscles and ligaments. Patients in need of orthopedic treatments are likely suffering from sprains and strains, sports injuries, arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain, joint replacement, repetitive strains or other related injuries.
Manual therapy is an effective treatment used by physiotherapists to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability. It includes joint mobilization and joint manipulation and muscle and soft tissue mobilization techniques.
This hands-on approach is effective in diagnosing and treating soft tissues and joint structures. It modulates pain, increases the range of motion, reduces inflammation, and assists in repairing tissue and improving function.
