Manipulation & Mobilisation

Manipulation & Mobilisation are used by Physiotherapists to improve the mobility and the function of your soft tissues, spine,  joints,  muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Manipulation is usually performed as a very fast movement on the spine to provide pain relief and increase flexibility. Whereas mobilisation is a slower technique performed on joints ligaments or muscle, also used for pain reduction and flexibility improvement.
Mobilisation can be gentle or deep depending on what is more appropriate for your condition. We sometimes use mobilisation belts as a treatment technique when appropriate.
