Manipulation

Manipulation is a physiotherapy treatment involving precise movements of one joint surface against another in order to restore joint movement. Our specialist physiotherapists at Liverpool Physio regularly implement manipulations as it is an effective treatment when utilised with other techniques such as strengthening and stretching exercises.


Who is manipulation suitable for?
