Manual Therapy & Exercise 

Manual Therapy & Movement Method™ Programs

At Vitality, we have a vision of what Physiotherapy should look like, and that always involves Manual Therapy and Movement Method™ programs. We have developed techniques and a therapeutic approach that have given our clients the positive results they are enjoying today. We want to continue to provide the highest level of service in Ottawa and the surrounding area.

Manual Therapy

Our Vitality Physiotherapists are highly trained at using their hands to diagnose and treat restrictions in joints, soft tissue, and movement. In modern manual therapy, physiotherapists use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and mobilize or manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.

Other manual therapy techniques our Vitality Physiotherapists provide include Active Release Techniques, Graston (instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization), and muscle energy techniques.

Movement Method™ Programs

Our Approach has one main focus: YOU. Our Movement Method™ programs are designed by your physiotherapist and they focus on helping each individual reach their full potential of living a healthy, pain-free life through movement by correcting deficiencies identified during your Body Assessment. Research has shown that Movement Method™ is the answer to help you live a pain-free life, as such we want to educate our patients on the exercises that will help them reach their goals faster. Movement is the keystone of our efforts. Can Physiotherapy help me with my pain?
