A manual therapist is a specialised physiotherapist who after studying physiotherapy followed training for manual therapy. He has additional knowledge with regard to the musculoskeletal system and, especially the spine. The manual therapist will assess the connection of all the joints and make an analysis of the complaint.

Duration of the treatment is 25 to 30 minutes, consisting of an intake (history) and followed by treatment.

The goal of manual therapy is to improve the mobility of joints, primarily based on the functionality of the spine, and corrections of the posture and movements. There are special techniques that will be applied on the joints. In addition through medical fitness, the stability of the joint can be improved.

Manual therapy is suitable for all ages.

Since January 2006,you no longer need a referral note from your gp (doctor) for manual therapy. By means of screening will assessed if there is a need for treatment.

We strongly advise treatment by a registered NVMT manual therapist. The NVMT is the professional association for manual therapists recognized by the Royal Dutch Society for Physiotherapy (KNGF).

Members are covered by the regulations of the KNGF. All registered manual therapists must meet certain requirements of the craftsmanship in-service training and refresher courses. (www.nvmt.nl).
