Joint Mobilisation

Physiotherapists use manual techniques to increase the range of motion of a joint. It can be performed on any joint within the body to relieve stiffness of the joint and overlying muscles. There are a variety of techniques that can be used for example Mulligan, Maitland, etc. Mobilisations are usually performed in a slow and controlled manner and are different to manipulations where the force is applied very quickly and sometimes with more force.

Joint mobilisations are commonly used for the following conditions:

  • Wry neck (stiff neck where you are unable to turn a certain direction)
  • Low back pain
  • Shoulder problems
  • Jaw or TMJ issues
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle sprains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • After prolonged immobilisation of joints (for example when you have had a cast on)
