Joint MobilisationChartered Physiotherapy in Blackpool, St. Annes, Lytham, Poulton, Cleveleys and Fleetwood
Your joints need to be able to move around to keep you mobile. If they become stiff or restricted in any direction, you can experience considerable pain and disability. That’s where joint mobilisation techniques come in. Your physiotherapist will start by assessing areas of pain, stiffness and hypermobility.
What is joint mobilisation?
Joint mobilisation techniques first and foremost seek to attain a normal range of pain free joint motion for clients. According to research, nearly every movement restriction can be regained through specific joint techniques performed by experienced physiotherapists. Crunches, clicks and pops are thankfully mostly sounds of the past when it comes to joint mobilisation techniques in practice. It’s incredibly important not to overstretch a joint, creating instability or hypermobility. Conversely, hypermobile joints require a different set of techniques.
Ultimately, your successful rehabilitation comes down to the specific skills and experience of your physiotherapist and the combination of treatments they perform. Our team come from an elite sports background and offer a diverse range of cutting edge therapies, including the latest in joint mobilisation for pain free movement.
