Abstract:The Nordic System of Manual Therapy has been developed by Freddy Kaltenborn and Olaf Evjenth over a number of years. The system has its roots in historical medicine. The Nordic system seeks to restore normal joint mechanics. The progression of treatment is determined by monitoring the patient's symptoms such as pain. The aim of this article is to review the historical basis of the Orthopedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) Kaltenborn-Evjenth System and to present current concepts regarding the Nordic System of Manual Therapy.
