What is Maitland Therapy?

Maitland Therapy is considered the cornerstone of modern day orthopedic manual therapy for treatment all joints of the body. This approach is patient-centric and respects the diagnosis with an understanding of the underlying cause.  At OSPT, all of our clinicians receive advanced training in the Maitland Australian Approach. 

Our manual techniques gently provoke the patient's actual symptoms using carefully graded passive mobilization. This approach is recognized worldwide as an efficient, safe and gentle way to evaluate and treat the orthopedic patient to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, restore movement and maximize function.

"The Maitland-Australian Approach is highly efficient and effective in the management of neuromuskuloskeletal conditions."

The Maitland approach requires the development and continual refinement of clinical assessment skills and clinical judgment by utilizing a thorough and accurate evaluation. This dynamic thought process results in a more knowledgeable treating clinician.  The Maitland approach has always been, and continues to be, concerned with the patient's needs above all.  Few philosophies of manual therapy can claim the same level of commitment to the patient's values and well-being, as the Maitland Approach.
