Mobilisation is a gentle, slow movement performed on joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves to reduce pain and improve flexibility. This is a manual technique performed by your physiotherapist and involves graded, oscillatory movements to the specific joint or region to assist restoration of your normal movement, lubricate joint surfaces, decrease your pain and reduce muscle spasm.
It is just one of the many skills used within our clinic and is rarely used as a stand-alone approach. A full and thorough clinical assessment is made at the start of treatment which allows the physiotherapist to use a combined approach in the management of inflammation, pain, to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
