Joint Mobilization Vargo Physical Therapy

Joint mobilization is a manual therapeutic treatment technique used to manage musculoskeletal dysfunction. It promotes movement in stagnant tissues and joints by oscillating or providing a traction force to the joint in specific directions, to increase joint mobility. Specific joint mobilizations can target joints with decreased mobility due to mechanical dysfunction, prolonged immobilization following injury and/or surgery. This increased joint mobility helps to promote normal range of motion and return to function.
