The aim of manual therapy is on the one hand to improve the movement of the joints and on the other hand to improve posture and movements. For this, the manual therapist uses a number of specific techniques that can be applied to/in the joints. The aim is to reduce limitations in daily activities.
Manual therapy is often also combined with exercises so that the patient can independently keep the joints mobile and strengthen the muscles.
Manual therapy is a specialized Master’s study aimed at improving joint functions and learning specific techniques for this. Much attention is also paid to the latest scientific developments, such as reading and interpreting scientific studies.
We tailor the treatment based on scientific research, your needs as a patient and of course our own experience.
