Manipulation & Physical Medicine
Manipulation and physical medicine is naturopathic medicines greatest kept secrets. When we think about body alignment and bone structure we think of chiropractors. What is so amazing about a naturopathic doctor's scope of practice is that a huge amount of our education and practical training is devoted to joint manipulation and mobilization. Not only that, but we have the understanding to know that when we have a joint that is not functioning properly, there is an underlying cause. Whether that be a structural bone length abnormality or a function muscle imbalance, we are trained to identify and treat those underlying root causes.
Some other tools we use to assist us in this realm are ultrasound, laser, message and condition specific exercises to help restore function.
