Orthopedic Manual Therapy (OMT)

Not only spinal manipulationsv

The Orthopedic Manual Therapy (OMT) is a specialization in physiotherapy for the treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal pathologies. It is based on clinical reasoning, which uses highly specific treatment approaches, including manual techniques and therapeutic exercises. Among the manual techniques there are the famous manipulations, the mobilizations, and the numerous techniques aimed at soft tissues.

The Orthopedic Manual Therapy (OMT) is always based on the most recent scientific methods and uses the biopsychosocial model for a scientifically based understanding of illness or health of each patient. In this way the best therapeutic treatment will be identified for patients diagnosed with musculoskeletal disorders.

What problems is Orthopedic Manual Therapy indicated for?

The Orthopedic Manual Therapy is aimed at people suffering from neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. Studies show that musculoskeletal disorders are among the most common diseases in the world and among the main causes of disability. In Italy, back pain is the leading cause of disability and, together with cervical pain and other musculoskeletal disorders, it is found in the top ten of this special classification.

Is it just spinal manipulations?

Certainly NOT! Physiotherapists who deal with musculoskeletal problems primarily encourage self-management of patients, pushing towards an active patient attitude for the recovery of lost functional capabilities in the long run.
