Manipulation / mobilisation

What is manipulation / mobilisation?

Manipulation and mobilisation is a manual technique used on joints, if you are experiencing pain or stiffness in the joints your therapist  may decide manipulations or mobilizations treatment would be beneficial to you. Podiatrists use manipulation and mobilisation to gently stretch and relieve stress or strain in the joints and/or surrounding structures, increasing joint range of motion.

How do manipulation / mobilisations work?

Mobilisations is a gentler technique taking the joint through the desired range. Manipulations uses fast pressure upon the joint at the end of its range of motion. Often mobilisations are used first to deter whether the patient/joint is suitable for manipulations. Manipulations may be used if the joint has failed to respond to mobilisations.

Before manipulations / mobilisations, the joint will be in a relaxed position, and from there the therapist uses techniques to put the joint through the desired range.
