Spinal Mobilisation consists of small passive movements, usually applied as a series of gentle stretches in a smooth, rhythmic fashion. They are applied at various locations on each of the affected vertebrae, and at various angles, directed at relieving restriction in movement at any particular level of the spine.
Mobilisation stretches stiff joints to restore range. It also relieves pain by using special techniques.
Spinal Mobilisation is a safe method and a gentle alternative to Spinal Manipulation because it is done slowly and the patient has the opportunity to stop the procedure if it becomes uncomfortable.
Spinal Mobilisation is particularly helpful with:
○ Back pain
○ Neck pain
○ Shoulder pain
