What Is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a healthcare profession focused on evaluating, diagnosing, and treating conditions affecting the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiovascular systems.

Physiotherapists are trained professionals who use techniques and exercises to promote healing, relieve pain, restore function, and improve your overall physical well-being.

At Adelaide West Physiotherapy in Downtown Toronto, our main focus is on manual physiotherapy for musculoskeletal/orthopedic and certain nerve-related conditions.

Our Specialization in Manual Physiotherapy

Manual physiotherapy, also known as manual therapy, is a specialized form of physical therapy where trained physiotherapists perform hands-on techniques to assess, diagnose, and treat various conditions and dysfunctions.


In our manual therapy sessions, our trained physiotherapists apply various techniques to address musculoskeletal issues, facilitate pain relief, improve range of motion, and promote healing.

Expertise and Experience


The therapist applies gentle, controlled movements to the joints to restore their normal range of motion, reduce stiffness, and alleviate pain.



Manipulative techniques, such as high-velocity low-amplitude thrusts, may be used to restore joint alignment and function and are often used for conditions such as back or neck pain.

Muscle Energy Techniques (MET)


MET involves the patient participating in resisted muscle contractions and relaxations combined with specific joint movements. It can help improve joint mobility, strengthen weak muscles, and correct muscle imbalances.

Soft Tissue Mobilization


This technique involves massage, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy to target muscles, tendons and ligaments to reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and promote tissue healing.

Manual Stretching


The therapist uses gentle stretching techniques to lengthen tight muscles, improve flexibility, and increase range of motion.
