Articulation Techniques

Articulation Techniques

 

Articulation techniques consist of passive mobilisation of joint with low velocity and moderate to high amplitude. Depending of the area and of the dysfunction long or short lever can be used. These techniques aim to:

  • Increase joint range of motion
  • Decrease adhesion and stiffness
  • Improve lymphatic drainage
  • Limit compensation due to fear avoidanceosteopathy

They are particularly useful for:

  • Back and neck pain due to facet irritation, muscle fatigue or disc herniation
  • Pelvis girdle pain due to sacroiliac/pubis symphysis irritation or piriformis spasm
  • Joint pain due to trauma, osteoarthrosis or inflammation
  • Post-surgery rehabilitation (knee, hip, shoulder, etc.)

Our musculoskeletal physiotherapist offer home visit because we think it is more convenient for mummies and allow you to rest at the end of the session. But we also consult in our practice located in North london between Kentish town and Camden town.
