We are qualified to manage and prevent musculo-skeletal conditions using manual therapy, the Mulligan technique and exercise.
Joint mobilisation is a localised specific stretching and movement of tight joints. All physiotherapists are trained and experienced in these techniques.
Manipulative mobilisation is the term used to describe the field of physiotherapy practice which relates to disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, neck and back.
Physiotherapists who practise in this area have completed post graduate training and are skilled in the assessment, diagnosis and physiotherapy management of musculoskeletal conditions which may involve a high velocity thrust technique to a joint as part of the treatment plan.
This simple yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain.
Benefits of mobilisation with movement
Mobilisation with movement is a manual therapy approach utilised by physiotherapists specialising in the care of patients with musculo-skeletal pain. Physiotherapists trained in the Mulligan Concept can assist individuals in improving movement restrictions, pain with movement, and functional restrictions. Mulligan practitioners seek to improve the patient’s movement with the application of pain free hands on techniques.
Common Indications for this approach:
Pain of a non-inflammatory nature
Acute pain from injury
Loss of motion due to arthritic conditions
Post-surgical conditions causing loss of pain free movement, e.g. post scope conditions, spinal surgery
Headaches due to neck problems
Dizziness associated with neck problems
Jaw or Temporomandibular joint pain and movement restrictions
Acute or chronic ankle sprains
“Tennis elbow” or lateral elbow pain
All physiotherapy sessions are set at a flat rate. You will receive one to one attention throughout your appointment and will always be seen in a professional, clinic environment.
