Benefits of Using Joint Mobilization in Sports Therapy

As an athlete, you may need sports therapy to address injuries to a wide array of body parts. One of the body structures that you’re the most likely to injure is one of your joints. If you’ve injured one of your joints while playing a sport, then you’ll want to find a sports therapy team that can help you get back on the field quickly.

One of the most beneficial sports therapy methods is joint mobilization. At Continuum Wellness, our experienced team understands the important role that your joints play as an athlete. Luckily, our team has performed many assessments for joint injuries. We have also worked with many athletes to create customized rehab plans to help treat injuries and other sports-related pains.

Benefits of joint mobilization physical therapy

From your shoulders to your toes, your body is the home of hundreds of joints. These joints help you move and bend and are used in just about every daily activity you can think of. When one of these joints is injured, it can become inflamed and restrict movement. That’s when you need to see a physical therapist to help treat your condition and get you back to the activities you love.

One of the most effective methods that we use at Continuum to assist you with joint injuries from sports is joint mobilization.

Joint mobilization involves one of our therapists applying measured amounts of force to passively move your injured joint into alignment. To do this, we may use techniques involving hands-on movements. We may also ease your joint movement with specialized tools and equipment.

Whichever type of joint mobilization we choose, the technique may have significant benefits for your joint injury recovery. These benefits may include:

  • Reducing the levels of pain and discomfort from your injury
  • Increasing the range of motion of your joints
  • Improving the movement quality of your joints

The goal of our joint mobilization physical therapy is to help you get back to playing your favorite sport faster. We can even help you learn about ways you may be able to prevent future joint injuries.

Contact the Continuum Wellness team today to learn more about joint mobilization and to schedule your initial appointment.
