What is Joint Mobilization?
Joint Mobilization or manipulation is when a subluxation occurs in any one of the vertebrae or any other joint. This means that they are not quite straight or two or more have become stiff immobile. By applying gentle mobilization this will relieve the pressure. This will help maintain good posture and supply the surrounding muscles with nutrient rich blood. If there is an impingement this function will be impaired.
What is Joint Mobilization used for?
Joint Mobilization is for the relief of pain in the lower back, neck or any other joint for pain relief and prevention of headaches.
What does it involve?
It is a method whereby the physical therapist uses movement within the limits of the said joint. These Mobilizations help to relieve pressure in the spine or any other joint and help in the healing process. We use Joint Mobilization with a combination of our other Physio therapies, deep tissue massage, dry needling, cupping and ultrasound. A combination of these treatments are used to treat symptoms of back pain plus Joint Mobilization to realign any skeletal subluxation if required.
