Feel Like You Again

Mobilisation is where small movements are applied by the therapist to stiff immobile joints, to encourage movement. I have completed post graduate training courses in Cyriax, Maitland, Mulligan, McKenzie and Sarah Key and will suggest whichever is best for you. Gentle oscillation will encourage the joint to move and the patient can then find it easier to return to normal daily activity and exercise.

Joint mobilisation is helpful in cases where pain and joint tightness limit motion, as in the case of a frozen shoulder. I also regularly use mobilisation to relieve low back pain, or any other joint where tightness is present. During an assessment I will assess the range of movement and the amount of pain that may be limiting joint movement, I will then choose the most suitable grade of oscillation, which has the effect of relieving pain and bringing about a temporary increase in passive motion. The exercise I give you will then help you maintain this moving forward.

I use joint mobilisation to treat the following conditions:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle and foot problems
  • Elbow hand and wrist issues

I accept self referrals and I am registered with all the major insurers including BUPAWPAAXA and Aviva.

Thank you for freeing up my neck so quickly. I am now able to sleep at night and return to my gardening.
