Manipulative physiotherapy refers to the use of high velocity thrust techniques in order to manipulate a restricted or stiff joint and restore the normal range of movement to that joint. There is often an associated ´popping´ or ´clicking´ noise with these techniques. Theoretically, any joint can be manipulated but with MoveWell Joondalup Gate Physiotherapists manipulation is only used when necessary and when the patient is comfortable with having the technique performed.

It is worth noting that manipulation forms only one aspect of manual therapy and that MoveWell Joondalup Gate Physiotherapists undergo intense continuing education to ensure that all their manual therapy techniques are up-to-date and refined. All MoveWell Joondalup Gate Physiotherapists attend regular group sessions to practice high velocity thrust techniques under the supervision of a Specialist Musculo-skeletal Physiotherapist.

MoveWell Joondalup Gate Physiotherapy support local and community sports clubs and many of our staff travel interstate and overseas with representative teams in a variety of sports. Our Physiotherapists are experienced in assessing, diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating a wide variety of sporting injuries. We aim to get you back to your activity quicker, stronger and less likely to re-injure.
