Mark Leather Physiotherapy

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a treatment used by physiotherapists, sports therapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths to mobilise and manipulate joints.

A mobilisation is a manual treatment technique performed by the therapist on both peripheral and spinal joints. It directly treats joints and soft tissue in order to:

  • Restoring normal movement
  • Improving range of movement at a joint
  • Lubricating joint surfaces
  • Decreasing muscle spasm
  • Relieve/reduce Pain
  • Stimulate the joint to increase awareness and joint position sense

Mobilisations involve graded, passive and oscillatory movements to the affected joint or region. These are performed repeatedly in large or small dosages and for varying amounts of time depending on the complaint.
