Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT) has been defined as the “hands-on” treatment provided by the Physical Therapist. Treatment may include; joint mobilization and manipulation, muscle stretching, passive movement of the affected area, manual resistance, and techniques to improve the mobility and function of tissue and muscles. At Southern Physical Therapy Clinic, we make a commitment to provide an individualized level of manual therapy to each and every patient that we treat. Our reason is that research has shown that Manual Therapy combined with Therapeutic Exercise provides you with the best outcomes. Manual therapy has also been shown to provide an improved Therapist-Patient relationship including patient trust, patient confidence, and a stronger Therapist-Patient alliance. Manual Therapy has been a fantastic tool that we love to implement with our patients.
