Joint Mobilisation Techniques
The three most typical joint issues are:
- joints ache
- joint stiffness
- hypermobility of joints
You can experience joint ache and stiffness since these two symptoms can happen separately or together.
What is Normal Joint Movement?
Your joints must move freely and comfortably in all directions, as this is how they were intended to. You might feel pain and stiffness if they lock or become restricted in a certain direction.
Fortunately, you can quickly and easily restore full joint range of motion and pain-free movement with the help of a skilled physiotherapist who is familiar with your joints. To do this, a physiotherapist will determine which joints in your body are:
- painful (but normal motion)
- stiff, painful
- painful and hypermobile
Depending on the joint stiffness/hypermobility and the pain you experience when moving your joint, different joint mobilisation treatments are available. Your skilled physiotherapist diagnoses and properly treat your joint issue.
What are Joint Mobilisation Techniques?
Techniques for mobilising joints are aimed at restoring a normal range of motion without experiencing any pain. An expert musculoskeletal physiotherapist tends to restore mobility restrictions by using a specialised joint technique. And the good news is that there are now choices that are extremely delicate and painless. Joint mobilisation procedures have evolved.
Thankfully, the outdated crunch and munch, click and pop methods are no longer used! Furthermore, it is crucial to avoid overstretching a joint to prevent hypermobility or instability. Different treatment methods are needed for stiff joints versus hypermobile joints.
Please speak with your physiotherapist for both the best advice and a personalised assessment.
Why do Joints Stiffen or Lock Up?
Any joint, muscle, tendon, or ligament injury can result in joint stiffness or a locked joint. Also, joints may lock and become immobile in either the open or closed position. Similar to how a door that doesn't quite swing fully open or closes bumps into something and becomes painful or stiff.
The joint usually moves uncomfortably and unnaturally due to a simple alignment or control fault. The joint treatment technique used to unlock your locked joints also will differ based on the diagnosis made by your physiotherapist.
Your physiotherapist will discuss with you the strategies that would be the most productive, secure, and painless following a thorough evaluation. They will then start solving your issue right away.
