Manipulative Therapy (MTSG)

Manipulative Therapy is probably one of the most recognized specialties in Physiotherapy. It is characterized by the form of therapy, rather than the field of practice (e.g. Peadiatrics). Being a full Member Organisation of the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists, only physiotherapists with advanced training in an IFOMPT endorsed Master Degree in Manipulative Therapy (or equivalent) could be admitted as MTSG full member.

Manipulative Therapy is indicated in the management of a wide range of conditions; such as pain (especially chronic), and neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunctions for people in different age groups across life span. Manual therapist adopts a contemporary, evidence-based and individualised treatment approach to facilitate recovery of people in need. Treatments such as massage, soft tissue adjustments, stretching, and neuro- and/or joint-mobilization are our core skills, in addition to other therapies including exercise therapy and motor control training form the basis of our daily practice.

Community Rehabilitation and Primary Healthcare Working Group(C&PWG)

Working Group

Community Rehabilitation and Primary Healthcare Working Group (C&PWG) is a new Working Group of HKPA endeavours to translate contemporary rehabilitation models, approaches, concepts and research findings into the management of non-communicable diseases, health risk factors, and age-related health/biological declines for healthy and special populations in the community care context.

With aging population and growing numbers of non-hospitalised survivors of childhood- and adult-onset chronic conditions, awareness of the importance of CBR and PHC among government policy makers has been raised and increasingly more new initiatives will be launched.  It’s time to strengthen connections among physiotherapists serving in the community, encompassing NGO, private, HA and the government sectors.

The objectives of the C&PWG are three folds:

  • to advocate cross-sector and cross-NGO service alignment, coordination and collaboration;
  • to improve public’s and academic’s awareness and accessibility to community PT services;
  • to promote specialty in CBR and PHC for professional growth among PTs;

And the ultimate goal is professional and image enhancement of community PT practitioners for attracting and retaining talents in related fields.

Deliverables of the WG in the first 2 years are:

  • to build user-friendly community PT service directories in the new HKPA website for easy searching by the public of the available PT services in the social sector;
  • to collaborate with local academic and training institutes for developing relevant professional trainings for physiotherapists working in the community context;
  • to advocate a continuum of care through Public-Private Partnership (PPP), Medial-Social Collaboration (MSC), and inter-NGO referrals.
