Does being a “Manual Therapist” mean I am a member of another profession?


No, in fact, “Manual Therapist” is a credential or title, not a license, which various health professionals can attain through a variety of continuing education programs offered almost exclusively by private entities that are not regulated or accredited. Like “Manual Therapist”, osteopractor is not a new or separate profession, but simply represents “physical therapists or medical doctors that have completed an evidence-based post-graduate training program in the use of high-velocity low-amplitude thrust manipulation and dry needling for the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities”.
