Manual Joint Manipulation / Mobilization
Whether it is due to trauma or an over use injury the joints of the body can become fixated and this commonly results in pain. Simply put, the muscles, tendons or ligaments of a certain region will tighten up and cause the joint surfaces to approximate, and it is this reduction in motion that commonly results in the discomfort you feel.
As well as helping you get better, your comfort is our main priority. Different patients can tolerate adjustment forces differently and we absolutely take that into consideration. Patients with an acute or painful injury may require a gentler mobilization of the joints until they become acclimated to the treatment and are able to handle greater ranges of motion.
