How mobilisations and manipulations by a qualified physiotherapist can help

Mobilisation and manipulations are manual techniques used to aid joint movement. They are normally used by a physiotherapist when their patient has joint stiffness or pain. They can be used in a variety of circumstances and are helpful to treat back pain, neck pain and leg pain to name a few.

How will Mobilisation help me?

Mobilisations are used by physiotherapists when there is joint stiffness, and you have a limited range of movements. The patient will be in a relaxed position while the physiotherapist will move the joint, applying varying amounts of pressure, within the range of movement permitted. The patient would be unable to perform these movements due to pain without the support from the physiotherapist. This has a range of benefits such as improving joint function and range of movement whilst providing pain relief and loosen up stiff muscles.

What is Manipulation?

Manipulations are slightly different to mobilisations as they involve the physiotherapist moving the joint beyond the range of movement achieved independently by the patient. You often hear a crack or popping sound during a manipulation as these are more intense than mobilisations. They help to increase range of movement at joints and relax muscles around the joint.

If you feel that manipulations and mobilisations can help you overcome and manage your joint pain, please contact Home Physio Group on 0330 335 1016  to talk to our team, or alternatively, please use the contact form on the website and we will reach out to you.
