Orthopaedic Therapy

What You Need to Know About Orthopedic manual Therapy?

Imagine you had no muscles, bones, joints, tendons, or ligaments. Physically, there wouldn’t be much you could do.

Now imagine what life is like when your muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments are not functioning fully.

It hurts to move. You can’t do what you enjoy. Your life could be defined by:

  • Pain
  • Weakness
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Immobility

Orthopedic manual therapy is a treatment that focuses on improving the function of your orthopedic system—those very important muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments.

What conditions can benefit from orthopedic MT?

You could benefit from orthopedic manual therapy if you have been injured or are facing the prospect of surgery. You might have had a fall, a sports-related injury, or an injury from repetitive use of a joint.

Treatment is focused on helping you to build up your strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Orthopedic MT is meant to get you back on your feet and enjoying life again.
