Manual therapy plays an important role in the management of people with musculoskeletal conditions.

However, even the most ardent manual therapist recognises the benefits of many other approaches and incorporates them into skilful clinical practice. But how best to go about this?

  • Professor Chad Cook – Duke University. Professor Cook has developed a framework for orthopaedic manipulative therapy (OMT), matching treatment selection to pain mechanisms.
  • Professor Nadine Foster – University of Queensland. Professor Foster has looked at patient-centred manual therapy, as well as research designs and ideas on that can increase understanding of the role of manual therapy in our toolkit.

Professor Cook and Professor Foster are at the School of Physiotherapy in March 2024 as Visiting Fellows sponsored by the Stanley Paris Musculoskeletal and Manual Therapy Fund.
