Peripheral Joint Mobilisations
Joint mobilisations are an extremely effective technique used by Physiotherapists to improve joint range of movement, mobility and reduce joint pain. Mobilisations can be effective after a range of problems such as injury, or following surgery, or removal of casts and braces, and general stiffness from disease such as osteoarthritis.
Spinal Mobilisation techniques are utilised by physiotherapists as a non-invasive, effective technique for back and neck problems. By mobilising the spinal segments identified through the assessment process, they aim to reduce and relieve pain, increase joint range of movement and return normal function.
Soft Tissue Release Techniques
Overactive muscles can be painful in certain areas or their entirety and often present as shortened or “tight”. This muscular dysfunction can cause reduced range of movement, lack of mobility and/or pain throughout the body. Several techniques can be utilised to alleviate tension and pain in muscles. These techniques can also be used pre sport to enhance performance; and post sport to aid recovery.
