Restoring spinal joint movement
If you have stiff or tight joints these can be stretched and unlocked to restore full movement using physiotherapy treatments like joint mobilisations or manipulation.
At The Physio Room, our physiotherapists can use their hands to relax and move your joints using a range of joint mobilisation techniques such as mobilisation and traction.
A manipulation (adjustments) might also be recommended to you after your assessment. It’s a way of improving joint movement rapidly and often associated with a small click or popping sound as it’s being done.
Expert advice and aftercare
After treatment with joint mobilisations or a manipulation it’s not uncommon to experience mild tenderness but it’s really important to keep your joints moving to stop them from stiffening up again. Our physiotherapists will ensure you have an individualised programme of exercises to keep your joints moving.
