Joint Mobilization

Joint mobilization is a manual therapy intervention used to manage musculoskeletal dysfunction. The therapist manually moves the joint , gently through natural level of resistance , using skilled passive movements, that are applied at varying speeds and amplitudes, that may include a small- amplitude/ high velocity therapeutic movement.

Every joint is classified on a five grade scale of range of motion. Grade I and grade II are used predominantly to reduce pain and stiffness. Grade III, IV, V are used to increase mobility and joint play.

Benefits :

  • Improved joint mobility and range of motion
  • Decreased muscle spasms & tension
  • Increased freedom of movement
  • Decreased pain
  • Improve tissue extensibility (muscles, joint capsule )
  • Induce relaxation
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation or movement restriction
