WHAT Is Joint Mobilization?

Joint mobilization is the careful use of skilled graded forces to move a joint in a desired direction. Unlike stretching of a muscle joint mobilization is specific to the capsule of the joint itself. Gliding of the joint is usually used to improve motion and normalize joint function. Joint mobilization also has the added benefit of controlling pain. Any joint that is lacking sufficient motion may be mobilized. Joint mobilization on the neck, upper, middle and lower back, and sacroiliac joints, as well as to all of the joints of the extremities such as the shoulder, jaw, wrist, hand, hip, knee, foot and ankle.

What Our Clients Say

Christine P

I could resume laying down when I slept and performing everyday activities which were impossible before.

Upon arriving at PT, I had terrible pain in my neck and shoulders. The pain that came down my arm was excruciating. My primary care physician said I had a pinched nerve in my neck. After Dr. Patt examined my neck, I was assured that the staff would make me feel better soon (I was skeptical). After working with Dr. Patt and staff for just a couple of weeks, I was feeling much better and could resume laying down when I slept and performing everyday activities which were impossible before. I am now pain-free and so thankful to the staff for their expertise and compassion!

I’m now doing the things I couldn’t do before.

I came in with severe hip pain in late September. I had difficulty walking and standing without pain. The physical therapist here put me back together. I’m now doing the things I couldn’t do before. I am so grateful for all the help. Kudos to Dr.Patt, Crystal, Sue F and Amber as well as the great techs and their support. Many thanks.
