QuestionAnswer
Mobilization is a passive movement technique designed to improve joint function.
Indications: restricted joint mobility, restricted accessory motion, desired neurophysiological effects
Contraindications: active disease, infection, advanced osteoporosis, articular hypermobility, fracture, acute inflammation, muscle guarding, joint replacement
Grade I Small amplitude movement performed at the beginning of range
Grade II Large amplitude movement performed within the range, but not reaching the limit of the range and not returning to the beginning of range
Grade III Large amplitude movement performed to the limit of range
Grade IV Small amplitude movement performed at the limit of range
Convex-Concave Rule Determines the direction of decreased joint gliding and the appropriate direction for the mobilizing force.
Convex surface moving on a concave surface: Roll and slide occur in the opposite direction
Convex surface moving on a concave surface Mobilizing force should be applied in the opposite direction of the bone movement
Concave surface moving on a convex surface: Roll and slide occur in the same direction
Concave surface moving on a convex surface Mobilizing force should be applied in the same direction as the bone movement
