Joint Mobilisation

What is Joint Mobilisation

Joint Mobilization is a technique that applies passive movement directed at the joint without high velocity thrust and is performed at a speed in which the patient can stop it.

It is applied through sustained stretch or oscillatory motion a gentle coaxing motion or a rhythmic motion & it is performed over a wide range of movements and grades of movements.

To obtain full pain-free physiological range of motion, the joint needs to first move with space, fluidity, and gliding in or on its surfaces, needing to be present and full.

Benefits of Joint Mobilisation

  • Reduction of an internal derangement of a joint- if something is blocking that joint from its normal pain-free movement, mobilisation will reposition and improve normal movements.
  • Stretching adhesions- with stiffness & trauma of any sort, the body’s connective tissue becomes stiff and non-flexible. Mobilisation encourages these adhesive fibres to stretch and lengthen.

  • Break down tissue adhesions- just the same as above but with progressive and more intensive mobilisation, these adhesions can breakdown to allow the joint to regain full mobility.
  • Restoring normal range of a joint- with a painful and stiff joint restoring their normal range is important. This allows free and pain-free mobility, regain other joints mobility that are affected and aid in loosening up contractured muscles that surround that area and attach to that particular joint/bone.
  • Has a therapeutic effect on the nervous system by releasing endogenous opiates through the receptors in the joints to the nerves & then travels through the central nervous system.
  • Nerve root compression reduction – reducing nerve root compression is important and one
