Mobilisations are techniques used by Physiotherapists as part of a treatment plan in the management of various problems where joint restriction is present. This could appear in all joints, including the neck, upper, middle and lower back. Mobilisations can be performed throughout the body to help restore normal mobility.
Mobilisations refers to a gentle passive rhythmic movement of a spinal segment, region or joint within or at the limit of its range. Mobilisations are aimed at improving the range of motion at the region, easing muscle spasm, and reducing pain.
At Core Medial and Physiotherapy, mobilisation techniques are often done in combination with other therapeutic modalities such as massage, dry needling, exercise prescription and education as part of an overall treatment plan. As with all treatments, the benefits and risks will be explained to you and your consent sought before treatment begins.
