Specialized clinic for Manual Therapy and treatment for temporomandibular disorders (TMD), headaches and facial pain.

On this site you will find a brief summary of the treatment options available at the AGILPYHSIO Clinic.

What is Manual Therapy?

Manual Therapy is a specialized area of physical therapy for the management of neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions (pain and dysfunctions in joints, muscles and the nervous system) using highly specific treatment approaches including manual techniques and therapeutic exercises.

What is TMD-Therapy or CRAFTA®-Therapy?

CRAFTA Therapy is a specialized area of physical therapy for the management of patients with jaw, head or facial pain. Initially the physical examination will focus on the function of the jaw, the skull and the nerves in the face and skull. Additionally the therapist may decide to examine and treat the spine, the shoulder girdle and the hips.
