Orthopedic Manual Treatment (OMT) is a special field of Physiotherapy that has to do with the restoration of neuro-muscular-skeletal problems. It is based on clinical concept, using highly specialized approach techniques, including manipulations & healing exercises. Our physiotherapy center is equipped with high-tech beds of ten points, specially designed by the world’s leading Manual Therapists.
Very careful evaluation is the basis for the right treatment.
The father of Manual Therapy in Europe is Hippocrates, who has many times pointed out in his speeches that it is necessary to have complete knowledge of the function of the spine, as many disorders start from it.
The protagonist of medical manipulations was JA. Mennell, an osteopathist who taught mainly physiotherapists. One of his students was Cyriax, who came up with a series of techniques, whose safety was based on a very good evaluation and control of the factors that could deliver the best results. Cyriax, together with Kaltenborn and Maitland, are considered the three pioneers in the field of Manual Therapy.
Kaltenborn applied techniques based on convex-concave principles, and again here, the very good evaluation is the basis for the right treatment. Generally, Manual Therapy applied by trained therapists is completely safe and effective.
