Mobilisation & Manipulation
Mobilisation & Manipulation are manual techniques used by our physios in order to improve the mobility and function of your soft tissues, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Manipulation is usually performed as a very fast, accurate movement on the neck or back area to provide pain relief and increase flexibility. Often it’s accompanied by a small “pop” or click as a result of the release of pressure.
Mobilisation is a slower technique performed on joints, ligaments, or muscles, and is also used for pain reduction and flexibility improvement. It is slower than manipulation, with smooth movements applied in a repetitive process which can be either firm or gentle, depending on what is more appropriate for your condition being treated.
Our physios are experts when it comes to the body’s musculoskeletal system and will use manipulation and mobilisation as part of their treatment if appropriate for your condition.
