Manual and Manipulative Therapy
Advanced training in manual therapy is the cornerstone of our clinic.
Our philosophy is based on that of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy – we aim to use hands on assessment and treatment to identify the root cause of a patient’s pain and integrate the most up to date research and techniques to provide solutions to help them return to full function.
Our therapists spend time listening to each individual patient’s story and thoroughly assessing to get to the root cause of the pain or dysfunction. Then treatment plans are drawn with the patient to ensure both the rehabilitation goals and the individual patient’s goals are in the forefront of the planning process. The ultimate goal is to educate each patient about their pain and provide them the knowledge to be an active participant in the rehabilitation journey and tools to maintain this success long after you finish with physiotherapy to reduce the risk of relapse.
In order to possess this specific skillset, our therapists have undergone extensive training in the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy program.
FCAMPT physiotherapists undergo extensive training following graduation from their entry-level physiotherapy programs in the area of orthopaedics and hands-on therapy. This is usually a 5 year process of course work, and multiple paper and practical examinations.
