The joints in our bodies are often a source of pain.

This can be due to problems within the joint, for example arthritis (wear and tear/degeneration) or due to problems with the soft tissues that surround the joint. These joint problems arise due to age related changes or from a trauma. They can result in inflammation in or around the joint. The resulting joint stiffness and restriction prevents “normal” movement.

Joint Pain

Joint Mobilisation

Over time, this may present as pain on certain movements and may lead to abnormal compensation movement patterns. Joint mobilisations carried out by one of our Chartered Physiotherapists will aim to alleviate the stiffness and pain within the joint. Joint mobilisation is not a painful technique. You may feel slight discomfort or a sensation of increased pressure around the area being worked on.

Typically, after treatment your physiotherapist will prescribe you with an exercise program tailor made for you to maintain or improve the increase in range that joint mobilisation will have achieve.
