Manual/Manipulative Therapy

Manipulative Physiotherapists are highly trained in using their hands to diagnose and treat restrictions in movement in the spine, arms and legs. Using gentle, hands-on techniques, we can help to reduce muscle tightness, improve movement in the joints, reduce pain and improve function. Physiotherapists who are Fellows with the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) are recognized internationally as the highest designation for Manual Therapy. Physiotherapists with the FCAMPT designation are committed to providing the highest level of quality, patient-centered care, combining clinical experience with evidence-based practice. We are valuable members of your medical team and the best choice when dealing with complicated orthopedic muscle, joint and nerve conditions from head to toe. Further information on the certification program for this training in Canada can be found at www.manippt.org. All Physiotherapists at Fifth Avenue Physiotherapy have taken special post-graduate training in Manual and Manipulative Therapy and use manual techniques in treatment.
