Joint Mobilisation

When joints become dysfunctional as a result of trauma, overuse or disuse, they are unable to perform the movements for which they were designed. This can result in joint restriction and pain.

Joint mobilisation is a technique your podiatrist may use to restore the small, involuntary movements that assist joints to perform at their optimum. It can be done during your consult and involves bringing joints into better alignment with instant pressure or with back-and-forth oscillation of the joint in order to restore motion.

It can be used in conjunction with a number of other therapies including shockwave, dry needling and stretching and strengthening techniques.
