INTEGRATED JOINT MOBILIZATION

METHOD

Join us for a 3-day practical course to get a greater understanding of unique  “hands-on“ and instrument assisted joint mobilization techniques, and treating the causes of the pain to reach long-lasting improvement.

You will be able to decrease pain and restore the normal range of motion of the over-used and faulty joints that might have been caused by postural dysfunctions, sport specific movements, sitting lifestyle, stiffness, chronic pain or injuries, like strains.

Maximal improvement can be reached by re-setting the neuromuscular system and stabilizing targeted structures.

Manual and instrument assisted joint mobilization offers the following advantages:

  • reducing pain
  • releasing muscle spasms
  • reducing joint stiffness
  • improving joint blood flow
  • improving soft tissue flexibility
  • improving joint mobility
  • increasing the range of motion of the joint complex
  • changing the muscle function
  • preventing injury
  • maximizing athletic performance
