What is Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy?

Musculoskeletal (or Manipulative) Physiotherapists are experts in the management of musculoskeletal and particularly spinal-related pain. A Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist uses their expert assessment skills to diagnose the problem and provide holistic and effective, evidence-based treatment.

Treatment provided can include specific manual therapy such as mobilisation or joint manipulation, graded and individualised exercise rehabilitation, and pain neurophysiology education.
