Chiropractic is a health care profession dedicated to the non-surgical
treatment of disorders of the nervous system and/or musculoskeletal system.
Our chiropractors maintain a unique focus on spinal manipulation and treatment of surrounding structures.
Joint mobilization is a subtype of joint manipulative therapy in which the therapist moves the joints in specific directions and depths with, or without, the patient’s assistance, to stretch the joint and its surrounding tissues.
Mobilization is different from the high-velocity, low amplitude (HVLA) thrust joint manipulation employed by chiropractors and other manual therapists.
Chiropractors refer to HVLA thrust manipulation as a chiropractic “adjustment”, spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), or simply “manipulation”.
Thrust manipulation involves rapidly moving the joint beyond its physiologic or normal operating range of motion but below its anatomical or maximum limit of motion.
