So what’s the difference between a Chiro, Osteo or Physio?

At MT, we don’t see our Chiropractors, Exercises Physiologists, Osteopaths or Physiotherapists as different, we call ourselves Movement Therapists.

A Movement Therapist is a university qualified therapist from the fields of Chiropractic, Exercise Physiology, Osteopathy or Physiotherapy. They use a wide range of techniques and strategies to diagnose and treat movement dysfunction. They do this with the lens of our Movement Therapy principles and our core values generally.

Each of our Movement Therapists each have their own areas of interest and can have more knowledge in some areas than others. When booking your appointment we will guide you to the best therapist for you. We look forward to seeing you.
