A Musculoskeletal Therapist (MST) comprehensively tests the bodies movements, abilities and weaknesses. Using the test results (combined with MRI, X-ray and CT reporting) a MST treats clients through nerve manipulations, joint mobilisations and muscle techniques. The type of treatment varies with conditions and client preferences. An MST firstly aims to treat pain or decreased movement. Secondly, they treat the dysfunction which maybe causing or contributing to the pain or lack of movement. They aim to educate clients regarding their health and condition so they can better manage pain and movement.
