Joint Manipulation And Taping

Physiotherapists are trained to perform movements on you, where the therapist moves the limb/joint whilst you keep your muscles relaxed. Mobilisation and manipulation techniques are commonly used when you have pain and stiffness around a joint or muscle. Rest assured that the therapist is within the control of yourself so that the movement can be stopped if you so wish.
Mobilisation is where the therapist uses smooth movements of 2 or 3 seconds of small or large force anywhere within the range of movement of the joint.
Manipulation is the next step from mobilisation, where the therapist applies a thrust of small force on the joint at the end of its range of movement.
Therapists have a grading system for identifying the level of stiffness and pain, and then using that, they devise your treatment. Pain and stiffness have specific relationships with each other, and physios are experts in treating these. If you hear any clicks or pops then don’t be worried as these are natural and safe, as long as the treatment is done by a fully qualified professional.
Taping is a technique used by physios and sports professionals. Special tape is used, taping around muscles and joints for support. In cases after injury, you can use taping to restrict the movement of a joint to protect it from further injury.

Manipulation is the artful introduction of a rapid rotational, sheer or distraction force into an articulation. Manipulation is often associated with an audible popping sound caused by the instantaneous breakdown of gas bubbles that form during joint cavitation.
The differentiation between a manipulation and mobilization from a regulatory perspective is that a mobilization can be stopped at any point should the recipient decide to forgo the remainder of the procedure. On the other hand, a manipulation cannot be stopped by the practitioner once initiated.
