Manipulation & Mobilisation From A Chartered Physiotherapist.
What is Manipulation & Mobilisation?
Manipulation & mobilisation are manual techniques used by 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 and provides pain relief and increases flexibility. This is a safe and effective technique used as part of a treatment plan or session. 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 muscle, 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.
What We Offer
Your clinician will work with you to gain a better understanding of the problem or injury you have. We want to identify the specific cause of your problem so we can advise you on how to prevent this pain from recurring, as well as providing you with longer term results. Our overall aim is to improve your strength, mobility and coordination going forward.
When it comes to get deeper into the muscle layers to break down knots or adhesions, restore normal muscle function, and relieve pain our team has been trained extensively. Saying this, we’ll always make sure the pressure applied is not excruciating, as your comfort is important to us.
