Mobilization is the name given to a group of manual therapy techniques, by which a therapist is able to increase movement at a joint.

It’s suitable after injuries such as ankle sprain, or when stiffness is simply the result of lack of use or the aging process.

A physiotherapist will use their hands to assess the joint motion and then turn that examination into treatment, by taking the joints and gliding them in the different directions that will ultimately result in improvement of mobility.

You can consult with a local physiotherapist and see if they’re experienced and comfortable in using manual therapy mobilization.
