Manipulative physiotherapy is a specialised area for the management of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. It is driven by scientific and clinical evidence, and the biopsychosocial framework of each patient.

We use highly specified treatment techniques and therapeutic exercises.

Our staff have undergone advanced university based postgraduate training and carry the title Manipulative Physiotherapist or Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist.

The term musculoskeletal physiotherapist is now more commonly used around the world as it recognises that not all conditions require manipulation.
