Restoring spinal joint movement

If you have stiff or tight joints these can be stretched and unlocked to restore full movement using physiotherapy treatments like joint mobilisations or manipulation.

At Physiofit Cambridge, our physiotherapists can use their hands to relax and move your joints using a range of joint mobilisation techniques such as…

traction, ‘stretch and hold’, ‘stretch and move’ or small oscillations of the joints. A manipulation might also be recommended to you after your assessment.

It’s a way of improving joint movement rapidly and often associated with a small click or popping sound as it’s being done.

Expert advice and aftercare

After treatment with joint mobilisations or a manipulation it’s not uncommon to experience mild tenderness but it’s really important to keep your joints moving to stop them from stiffening up again.

Our physiotherapists will ensure you have an individualised programme of exercises to keep your joints moving and we’ll send them to you online with video links so you know you are doing them correctly at home.
