What is physiotherapy using manual techniques?

 

All therapists use exercises specifically designed to treat pain and stiffness. In addition to these exercises, physiotherapists at TAGMED clinic are highly trained to use their hands to assess and treat movement restrictions in the spine, arms and legs. Using soft and practical techniques, we can help you reduce muscle stiffness, improve circulation in the joints, reduce pain and improve function.

 

Skills and qualities of our physiotherapists

 

Our physiotherapists are all members of “l’Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec”.
