How mobilisation and manipulation by a qualified physio can help?

Joint mobilisation and manipulation are manual techniques used by physiotherapists to improve the function and mobility of your joints.

Mobilisation is a slower technique performed on joints, ligaments or muscle, and is also used for pain reduction and flexibility improvement. It is slower than manipulation, with smooth movements applied in a repetitive process which can be either firm or gentle, depending on what is more appropriate for your condition being treated. Although mobilisations are primarily used to treat joint conditions, they have also been seen to be very effective in the treatment of muscular or nerve injuries too. Mobilisations are also beneficial when used in conjunction with other treatments such as muscle stabilising techniques and exercise.

How is Manipulation performed?

Manipulation is usually performed as a very fast, accurate movement on the neck or back area and provides pain relief and increases flexibility. This is a safe and effective technique used as part of a treatment plan or session. It can be often accompanied by a small “pop” or click as a result of the release of pressure. Research has shown manipulation to be very effective when treating pain, particularly if used alongside other therapies such as mobilisations, acupuncture and exercise programs.

Joint mobilisation and joint manipulation are often used for symptoms such as:

  • chronic back pain
  • stiff or sore neck
  • frozen shoulder
  • knee and hip arthritis

Treatment to correct your joints will depend on the assessment and diagnosis made by your physiotherapist.

At Home Physio Group, our physiotherapists are experts when it comes to the body’s musculoskeletal system and will use manipulation and mobilisation as part of their treatment, if appropriate for your condition.
