Manual Therapy

Joint mobilization and manipulation to restore function


Manipulation is a treatment technique within the practice of manual therapy. A manipulation is a passive, high velocity, low amplitude thrust applied to a joint beyond its physiological limit of motion, but within its anatomical limit, with the intent to restore optimal motion, function, alter muscular tension and /or reduce pain.


Mobilizations are passive movements performed by the physiotherapist on a joint. These movements are usually oscillatory in nature can be performed anywhere within the normal range of motion of the joint. The purpose of mobilization is to restore normal joint movement and function thereby reducing pain.
