Manipulation along with mobilisation is most often used to help alleviate:

  • Back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck (cervical) pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Lower limb pain

Manipulation is a recommended treatment when something feels ‘stuck’ or out of joint and you’re in pain because of it.

John will usually mobilise (passively move) the affected area to loosen it up and then perform a quick thrust to help ‘unlock’ the area. In clinic, we have Interferential electro-therapy machines which are very helpful in relaxing the surrounding muscles and killing pain.

Manipulation is a “hands on” technique and John may spend as much as 20 minutes mobilising someone’s spine with a view to manipulating a particular joint which is compromised.

If you are suffering from any of these problems, you can book a free no obligation 15-minute face to face chat to discuss your condition and any questions you may have.
