Orthopaedic Manual Therapy

Orthopaedic Manual Therapy in Boyne Island

What is an Orthopaedic Manual Therapist?

An Orthopaedic Manual Therapist is a Physiotherapist with an additional four year specialisation in the physiology and pathology of the musculoskeletal system. Therefore they are the best Physiotherapist to consult for diagnostics and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. The OMT uses a broad range of special tests and treatment techniques, unique to this specialty.

Orthopaedic Assessment

The orthopaedic assessment not only identifies the site of the pain, but also the cause. This leads to the development of a specific treatment plan that targets the cause and is the only way the affected tissues can heal. The treatment is patient specific and is constantly evaluated in order to reach the highest quality of care.

Orthopaedic Techniques

One of the many specific orthopaedic treatment techniques mastered by the Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapist is the spinal manipulation. With the use of a High Velocity Thrust technique they can instantly restore the normal physiological movements of the spinal joints.

Orthopaedic Manual Therapist

An Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapist distinguishes themselves from the general Physiotherapist by having extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal disorders and having more refined assessment and treatment skills.
