I had back pain for months... finally decided to give Brentwood Physio a try. And let me tell you, best decision I ever made!

Dr. Roe

I’ve been going to Brentwood Physio for monthly tune-ups and my body feels my body feels so much looser when I’m hiking in Kananaskis.


I learned how to properly align my pelvis, which in turn, helped align my spine and neck and improved my neck pain from my car accident.

What is Joint Mobilization?

Joint mobilization is a hands-on physiotherapy technique used to treat joint pain and improve mobility. The physiotherapist uses skilled, controlled movements and forces to mobilize joints, to increase their range of motion. This helps to stretch muscles and ligaments, stimulate synovial fluid production for joint lubrication, and encourage proper joint alignment. Different grades or intensities of joint mobilization may be used, depending on the individual’s condition. The physiotherapist will also examine and treat the muscles around the joint being mobilized. When performed by a trained physiotherapist, joint mobilization is an effective way to reduce joint stiffness, alleviate pain, regain mobility, and improve overall joint function.

 It involves the skilled application of specific movements and techniques to joints and soft tissues to:

  • Restore normal range of motion
  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Improve joint alignment and mechanics
  • Break up adhesions and scar tissue

Our physiotherapists use different grades of joint mobilization based on your condition and goals.

Benefits of Joint Mobilization

Joint mobilization provides numerous benefits for people suffering from joint pain, stiffness, and restricted mobility. It helps increase joint range of motion, reduce inflammation and pain, improve alignment and mechanics, break down adhesions, and ultimately restore normal joint function. Joint mobilization also allows people to return to their daily activities and sports more quickly after an injury.
