Mobilisation and Manipulation – Physio Tullamore
Mobilisation and Manipulation are widely used physiotherapy treatment techniques offered at Physio Tullamore. It is the manual moving, stretching, lengthening and easing of all the tissues of the body.

Benefits of Mobilization with Movement
Mobilization with movement is a manual therapy approach utilized by health care practitioners specializing in the care of patient with musculoskeletal pain. Physiotherapists trained in the Mulligan Concept can assist individuals in improving movement restrictions, pain with movement, and functional restrictions. Mulligan practitioners seek to improve patient’s movement with the application of pain free hands on techniques. Both the clinician and the patient can quickly assess the value of this approach. If the technique(s) are indicated an immediate improvement in pain and movement will be observed. The Mulligan Concept is not a passive treatment approach and many individuals benefit from self-treatment at home.
Common Indications for this approach:
•Pain of a non-inflammatory nature
•Acute pain from injury
•Loss of motion due to arthritic conditions
•Post surgical conditions causing loss of pain free movement, e.g. post scope conditions, spinal surgery
•Headaches due to neck problems
•Dizziness associated with neck problems
•Jaw or TMJ pain and movement restrictions
•Acute to chronic ankle sprains
•“Tennis elbow” or lateral elbow pain
Spinal manipulation, is the traditional high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust. The manipulation often results in an audible “pop,” as physiotherapists use their hands to apply a controlled sudden force to a joint while the body is positioned in a specific way. This technique is used to improve joint range of movement and reduce pain.
Mobilisation and Manipulation are very effective techniques used daily at Physio Tullamore. Based on your symptoms your clinician will use either treatment to improve your joint function.
