for Joint Relief
Both mobilization and manipulation is focused on a single joint. Mobilization requires small, gentle movements isolated to the joint. After a while, the joint begins to relax and loosen, strengthening surrounding tissue and muscles – ultimately reducing pain and increasing joint flexibility.
Joint manipulation, on the other hand, is commonly referred to as an “adjustment” by the chiropractic industry. It may be performed by kneading a back or applying a quick thrust or twist to a joint, sometimes resulting in a popping or cracking noise. It’s important to note that this is not the best therapy option for any patients suffering from severe muscle spasms as this could potentially worsen the condition.
