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

Beth Goodspeed

I would highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy. I was very happy with the treatment and results for my vertigo. The treatment was so effective that my symptoms were gone even before I attended a doctor that specialized in vertigo!

ProPT was the best choice I made in my recovery process! I needed treatment for a years-old Achilles injury that I put off due to COVID. I am a runner, but was not able to walk around my job without significant pain. I had not run a half marathon without stopping due to pain in over 2 years. My ortho recommended another place, but I chose ProPT based on client reviews and proximity to my home and I was not disappointed! Dr. Ross was very encouraging and informative from my consultation, always making sure I knew how my muscles and tendons would react to the exercises and stretches we were doing. On the rare days when Dr. Ross couldn’t work with me herself, Chris and Amber were just as helpful, encouraging, and cheerful. My team truly cared about my comprehensive health, which made all the difference when I got back to running. When I told Dr. Ross that my hamstring was tightening up, she explained why and then made sure to incorporate exercises to strengthen the appropriate muscles and continue to reduce my risk of injury. These people have made all the difference for me: I can walk without pain again. I can run the half marathon distance without stopping and without pain! I am so thankful I chose ProPT and will definitely use them for any PT needs in the future.
