What is FCAMPT?
FCAMPT stands for Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy. Canadian physiotherapists can acquire the CAMPT certification by completing an additional physiotherapy education program regulated by the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapists (IFOMPT), which takes on average 5 or 6 years to complete.

How can a CAMPT-certified physiotherapist help me?
The research-guided techniques used by CAMPT-certified physiotherapists can help with a number of conditions, including:
- Head (headaches, jaw pain)
- Neck (whiplash, chronic neck or spine pain, radiating nerve pain)
- Upper back (shoulder blade pain)
- Lower back (herniated disc, degenerative disc disease)
- Arms (tennis elbow, fractures, rotator cuff pain)
- Legs (ankle sprains, arthritis, joint replacements)
Why would I want a physiotherapist who is CAMPT-Certified?
A CAMPT-certified physiotherapist possesses advanced training in orthopaedic assessment and manual therapeutic treatment techniques.
CAMPT-certified physiotherapists can perform joint manipulations as a treatment technique when indicated or required. Moreover, CAMPT certification offers clinical experience and specialized training in hands-on treatment of a wide range of injuries and physical problems.
What are joint manipulation techniques?
Joint manipulation is a regulated skill that can improve function and movement while helping reduce pain. Authorized physiotherapists manipulate joints by using rapid force movements that can improve joint motion space, changing the firing patterns of the pain nerves. Ultimately, this can allow a person to experience less pain.
Do I need joint manipulation?
It all depends on your condition. FCAMPT physiotherapists perform a complete review of your medical history and use scientific and clinical evidence to determine if joint manipulation is appropriate for your needs and to guide the application.
Research has shown that techniques such as thrust manipulation can restore normal joint movement and reduce muscle pain and tension. Joint manipulation can be used alongside other treatments, such as specific exercises, to help you reduce your pain and restore function so that you can get back to life.
