“Movement = health and motion is life.” — Joint mobilization is a physical therapy technique used to relieve pain and muscle spasms, release tension, and improve flexibility in a joint. With joint mobilization, the physical therapist applies gentle passive movements to the joint, which stretches the tissue and restores joint play. These motions stretch and strengthen the surrounding tissue helping reduce pain and spasm, and increasing mobility.
Joint-Play and Mobilization is a valuable study guide to prepare for National Board Exams, State/Province Board Exams, Clinical Skills Examinations and many other standardized licensure examinations.
