Spinal Mobilization Therapy
Spinal mobilization is a therapy technique used to treat back and neck pain and stiffness. The bones in the back, known as vertebrae, are surrounded by small muscles, which can get tight because of trauma, injury or disease. This can lead to pain, stiffness and restricted range of motion for activities of daily living.
Spinal mobilization gently stretches the muscles between the vertebrae, temporarily relieving pain and encouraging healing. A physical therapist slowly and gently stretches each vertebra through a series of controlled movements that relax the muscles and open the space between the vertebrae.
