The aim of the UIC Barcelona's Master’s Degree in Orthopaedic Manual Physiotherapy (OMPT) is to provide the advanced knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to create professionals capable of working as clinicians, scholars and researchers and undertaking specific communication, leadership and health promotion roles as part of an interdisciplinary team.


Orthopaedic Manual Physiotherapy at UIC Barcelona combines the information and experience of Manual Therapy, which has been applied since ancient times, Classic Physiotherapy, Sports Medicine, Orthopaedic Medicine, Osteopathy and Chiropractic under one common denominator, clinical and scientific evidence. 

OMPT treatment is based on a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s neuro-musculoskeletal system and functional abilities. 

The aim of the assessment is to define any conditions present in the patient’s systems (joint, muscular, nervous or any other relevant system) and explain how these conditions are related to any disability or functional limitation, as described by the WHO’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF).

The curriculum’s main objectives may be summarised as follows:

  • To adopt a procedural approach based on patient-centred care, current scientific evidence and measurement results.
  • To recognise the risk factors, precautions and contraindications and involve the patient in the assessment and treatment process.
  • To determine whether the OMPT treatment is suitable for a particular patient.
  • To perform a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s neuro-musculoskeletal system, including functional abilities and conditions.
  • To establish a clinical diagnosis and design a comprehensive treatment plan as a main component of a multidisciplinary team within the health system.
  • To gain a command of all OMPT therapeutic procedures with a view to alleviating pain and optimising the patient's functional abilities.
