Joint mobilisations are manual therapy techniques that are used to modulate pain and treat joint dysfunctions that limit range of motion (ROM) by specifically addressing the altered mechanics of the joint.
The altered joint mechanics may be due to pain and muscle guarding, joint effusion, contractures or adhesions in the joint capsules or supporting ligaments, or malalignment or subluxation of the bony surfaces.
Joint mobilisation stretching techniques differ from other forms of passive or self-stretching in that they specifically address restricted capsular tissue by replicating normal joint mechanics while minimising abnormal compressive stresses on the articular cartilage in the joint.
This one day workshop covers the 'Maitlands' type of peripheral joint mobilisations, grades 1 - 4, and is suitable for all massage/manual therapists and bodyworkers.
