Joint mobilisation is the passive movement of a skeletal joint by a practitioner to improve joint mobility and comfort. Joint mobilisations are performed by gently moving the joint through its range of motion. Joint mobility techniques can be delivered to all joints including the knee, hip, elbow, shoulder, ankle and spinal joints. Mobilisations are used to treat sports injuries like impingement and chronic conditions like arthritis.
Benefits of Joint Mobilisation
- Increase the mobility of a stiff and painful joint like the hip, ankle or elbow.
- Restore optimum movement patterns to reduce load on other joints.
- Enhance sporting performance by increasing joint flexibility and functional strength.
