Joint Mobilization Treatment

The most common concern faced by many is Joint Pain Relief versus Joint Stiffness. The two main joint problems are:

  • Joint stiffness
  • Joint pain

These two symptoms can occur in isolation or they can occur simultaneously, which means you can have joint stiffness and pain.

For full and pain-free movement your joints need to move freely in all directions that they were designed to. If they become locked or restricted in any direction, you may experience pain and/or stiffness. Luckily, with the assistance of a skilled physiotherapist who understands your joints, you can quickly and easily regain full joint range and pain-free movement. To achieve this, your physiotherapist will assess which of your joints are:

  • Painful and stiff
  • Hypermobile
  • Painful and Hypermobile

Joint mobilization treatment differs depending on the joint stiffness / hypermobility and the pain associated with moving your joint. Your skilled physiotherapist is the ideal health professional qualified to assess and treat your joint dysfunction effectively.

Joint Mobilization Techniques:

Joint mobilization techniques concentrate on attaining a normal range of pain-free joint motion. Nearly every restriction in movement can be regained by a specific joint technique performed by an experienced musculoskeletal physiotherapist. And the good news is … joint mobilization techniques have certainly improved over the years with very gentle and pain-free options available.

Common Examples of Joint Mobilization & Pain Relief Techniques may include:

  • Gentle Joint Mobilisations (eg Maitland, Mulligan, Kaltenborn techniques)
  • Mobility Exercises (eg McKenzie exercises)
  • Minimal Energy Techniques (Osteopathic-based active joint repositioning techniques)
  • Joint Manipulation
  • Traction / Distraction Techniques
