What is manual therapy/mobilisations?
Mobilisation is a hands-on technique with therapeutic intent. It falls under the category of manual therapy. It is often used by physiotherapists to manage musculoskeletal dysfunction. This treatment technique aims to provide pain relief, improve range of motion and restore pain-free functional movements. Pain can arise from restriction found in joints, connective tissue or muscles. By removing the restriction by mobilisation, the source of pain is reduced and the patient experiences symptomatic relief.
