Joint Mobilizations

Joint Mobilizations

Not a stand-alone intervention, but when used in combination with other indicated treatment modalities can help create an efficient and complete plan of care.

Joint mobilization is a skilled manual therapy technique used to improve joint range of motion.  A joint is where two bones come together.  Joints are located in your spine, these are called facet joints and are between each vertebrae.  Additionally, there are joints throughout our extremities, meaning legs and arms.  

When a joint becomes stiff for varying reasons it can start to limit your motion.  This may lead to pain and abnormal movement patterns.  Therefore, identifying the joint(s) that are not moving well and treating them with specific mobilization has the intended effect to increase passive range of motion of the targeted synovial joints in order to restore normal motion.
