Manipulation and Mobilisation

Manipulation

Is a technique to release joints from their blocked states. This blocked situation can be caused by an accident or hazardous movement as opposed to a 'natural blocking'.

Manipulative “thrust” is done inside the normal range of a joints movement and is therefore a safe, precise, quick and extremely effective procedure.


Mobilization

Is used to restore a joints normal mobility with special technique. Poor usage of joints causes them to stiffen and this, in turn, leads to other disturbances such as muscle tension and pain. The spine especially creates a stiffening of joints very easily if it is not used within its entire range of movement.

Miss usage of joints not only leads to shortening of the ligaments surrounding them, but also impaired mobility to joint capsules that can be described as an electro-chemical blocking state in the capsules.
