This umbrella term covers any therapies performed with bare hands, whether massaging, chirotherapy or osteopathy. Applying manual medicine is often a useful secondary procedure and is not infrequently considered the treatment of choice for orthopaedic or internal diseases.
Manual medicine, i. e. medical manual therapy, is not just a regular therapy as that offered by a physiotherapist, for example, but instead also includes the medical diagnostics needed to define the indications and contraindications of manual treatment. If a back pain is caused, for example, by an inflammation of the pancreas or an arterial occlusion in the abdominal cavity, the manual doctor is challenged to recognise that and to remove the cause medically.
A Comprehensive and advanced education in manual medicine provides safe and efficient diagnostics and therapy.
