Manual Therapy (Joint Manipulation and Mobilisation)
A joint manipulation is when a physiotherapist brings the joint to the end of the available range of movement. They then performs a short, sharp thrust movement, which brings the joint past its normal range.
The benefits are that it can help to free up a stiff joint. Some patients can have immediate relief from their symptoms.
There is a lot of evidence and research behind the effectiveness of manipulation once carried out effectively by a qualified clinician.
Our Physiotherapists at Pall Mall Physio have completed post graduate training in manipulation.
