OMT physiotherapy

Orthopedic manual therapy (OMT) is a specialist field within physiotherapy, which focuses on examining, treating and preventing various problems in the musculoskeletal system. The OMT therapists are physiotherapists or physicians who have undergone 3-3.5 years of special training. The examinations involve assessing the patient’s posture and mobility, testing for neurological symptoms, and evaluating body functionality and control. The therapist tries to determine the cause of the problems by interviewing the patient and through clinical testing.

After a careful examination, the therapist draws up a treatment plan and selects suitable forms of therapy in cooperation with the patient. The forms of therapy used can, for instance, be different kinds of manual techniques and therapeutic exercises. Problems in the musculoskeletal system are treated and prevented through appropriate guidance and suitable home exercises. Psychosocial conditions and environmental factors are also taken into account in the examinations and therapy. The key is to support the patient’s own activity and to provide guidance on how to avoid stressing the body incorrectly. Orthopedic manual therapy is continuously assessed and developed using new scientific knowledge and clinical evidence.

Expenses

The price for OMT physiotherapy depends on the length of the treatment session. For instance, the price for a 60-minute session is €92.
