Joint mobilization is a type of passive movement of a skeletal joint. It is usually aimed at a ‘target’ synovial joint with the aim of achieving a therapeutic effect. When applied to the spine, it is known as spinal mobilization.
Mobilization is a manual therapy intervention and is classified by five ‘grades’ of motion, each of which describes the range of motion of the target joint during the procedure.
