Hands on manual physiotherapy is more common in private MSK physiotherapy than in NHS physiotherapy which normally provides rehab physiotherapy only and very rarely any hands on manual therapy. Treatment modalities such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation and articulation, neurodynamics, stretching and if trained and qualified they may provide joint manipulation.

Rehab Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists are better known for their rehabilitation or rehab skills through the use of exercise and movement in order to build strength and support within the body to restore, improve and maintain a patient’s health. A physiotherapist may use rehab physiotherapy in the following ways:

  • Rehabilitation following an operation helping you to get back on your feet and your body stronger and supported
  • Rehabilitation following a sporting injury helping you to get back on track
  • Rehabilitation may also utilise aspects of the sport and fitness involved such as running assessments or rehab involving the action of throwing for a shoulder injury
  • Rehabilitation in conjunction with an existing condition such as a respiratory condition focusing on improving the breathing through improving respiratory function and movement of the upper back pain and rib cage

Clinical Pilates Physiotherapy

In addition to rehab physiotherapy some MSK physiotherapy are trained in Clinical Pilates. Clinical Pilates aims to restore, improve and maintain the MSK function of a patient’s body in order to help them deal with certain injuries and conditions or continue to improve and maintain a patient’s well being.

Using the concepts of Pilates, each instructor will assess and provide a programme of exercises specific to a patient’s injury or movement goals. One of the most common clinical Pilates training courses is with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) and is used by manual therapists such as physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors. For further information visit our Clinical Pilates page.

About Physiotherapy

To become a physiotherapist, one has to train at university for a duration of 3-6 years gaining a bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy. Once qualified physiotherapists register with both the Health & Care Professional Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP). Just like Osteopaths, Physiotherapists are government regulated medical practitioners and are held to set practice standards such as maintaining Continual Professional Development (CPD).

In addition to registration with the HCPC and CSP, physio’s may also join Physio First. Physio First is a trade association similar to the Institute of Osteopathy (IO) and whose aims are to champion chartered physiotherapists in private practice.

Just like osteopaths, physiotherapists are classed as “Allied Health Professionals” or AHP’s and together with 12 others regulated and governed professions make up the third largest group within the NHS. AHPs are degree level professionals who use a holistic approach to help patients throughout their whole life from birth to the elderly stages. Their focus is to restore, improve and maintain the health and wellbeing of a patient’s life allowing them to reach their goals and optimal potential.

In the UK there are over 59,000 physiotherapists registered with the CSP. Interestingly roughly 80% are female and 20% male with roughly 70% working in the NHS and only 11% working in private practice such as MSK physiotherapy clinic.
