Manual Therapy

Manual TherapyThe continuing growth of knowledge on the medical science of pathology, pathogenesis, predisposing factors and treatment methods led to specializations even further on all relevant fields. It wouldn’t be possible for physiotherapy not to follow this trend and nowadays is distinguished in various fields of specialization such as musculoskeletal, sports, neurological, respiratory, and pediatric physiotherapy amongst other.

In Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy years of scientific research proves that “Manual Therapy” is by far the most effective treatment comparing with various physiotherapeutic modalities which most of the patients in Greece know or “tried” in the past. In fact there are not any significant scientific research findings to date supporting the use of these modalities (i.e. diathermy, electrotherapy, ultrasound, laser etc.) for the management of most musculoskeletal disorders, especially for long term results.

The specialization in Manual Therapy is achieved through postgraduate studies on the field and many years of clinical experience. At Physioactive clinic we have both.
