Mulligan: is an outstanding new physiotherapy treatment used by individually trained physiotherapists assisting in passive physiological patterns and movements of the patient. Mulligan mobilizations are used everywhere including ankle, knee, back and shoulder. Gliding the patients restricted joints from a stiff and immobile position to a functional and pain free range.

The therapist assists in stretching out and maintaining the fascia (fascia is the connective tissue of the body which covers and penetrates the vascular system, nervous system and muscular system of the body) of the patient. During this treatment the fascia is mobilized from its restricted areas, decreasing tension and restoring normal movements and ranges.

Exercise Programs: Various types of exercise to strengthen or limber up muscles, soft tissue, joints, and ligaments.

Traction: the focus of this treatment technique is to decreasing joint stiffness, decrease muscle spasms, modulate pain levels and reduce nerve impingement.
