Alleviate Your Pain, Restore Your Mobility
Joint mobilization is a hands-on treatment designed to relieve pain and restore mobility after an injury. These exercises are considered manual physical therapy and mimic the glide that happens in between the bone. Usually done in slow and gentle progression, mobilization eases the joint in the desired direction to improve function and control pain.

Any joint with a limited range of motion can benefit from mobilization from a certified physical therapist, including the:
- Upper, lower and middle back
