Mobilization Definition

Mobilization is a manual therapeutic technique that fosters movement in stagnant tissues and joints. Spinal mobilization uses massage to break down scar tissue and restrictions that are typically associated with trauma to the soft tissue such as a strained muscle or pulled ligament.

By re-introducing small amounts of pressure to the affected area, the rate and amount of blood flow increases in and around the area due to the temporary inflammation. Mobilization is based on the theory that the manual manipulation will help initiate and promote the healing process of the affected soft tissues.
