Spinal mobililization is a therapy technique used to treat back and neck pain and stiffness. The bones in the back, known as vertebrae, are surrounded by small muscles, which can get tight as a result of trauma, injury or disease. This can lead to pain, stiffness and restricted range of motion for activities of daily living.
Spinal mobilization gently stretches the muscles between the vertebrae, temporarily relieving pain and encouraging healing. A physical therapist slowly and gently stretches each vertebrae through a series of controlled movements that relax the muscles and open up the space between the vertebrae.
