Relieve Your Aches and Pains with Spinal Mobilization!

Spinal mobilization is a great form of pain management. Do your joints hurt? Is your back causing you trouble? Has your pain become unbearable? If so, you may benefit from spinal mobilization.

Spinal mobilization helps relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It is a gentle, hands-on form of manual therapy that focuses on evaluating and enhancing spinal function.

Your spine does a lot for your body – it protects your spinal cord, allows you to breathe properly, and it is what allows your body to move.

In fact, almost every function in your body is directly connected to the health of your spine.

Therefore, even pain that may seem unrelated to spinal function could be effectively relieved through spinal mobilization treatments.

To learn more about how spinal mobilization could benefit you, request an appointment at Madden & Gilbert Physical Therapy today.

Physical therapy and spinal mobilization

Our physical therapist can check your spine alignment to check for areas that could be improved.

It is wise to have your spine checked every 6 months, in order to ensure that it is moving how it should.

At Madden & Gilbert Physical Therapy, our physical therapists are experts in the field of spine health who can help your spine get back to its normal level of function.

Spinal mobilization has had a very positive effect on many of our patients. Our physical therapists can help you restore more natural movement to your spinal joints, improve your flexibility to increase joint fluid circulation, improve your spinal muscle strength, and educate you on correct posture and prevention techniques.

Essentially, we can help you do more, with less pain. In fact, our patients often report a significant reduction in pain and improvement in daily activities after just a few short weeks of these treatments.

How will I benefit from spinal mobilization?

It is a treatment method that has been known to relieve a large variety of painful conditions.

In fact, a study published by the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy supports this treatment as an effective mode of treatment.

The study, titled “Effectiveness of Physical Therapist Administered Spinal Mobilization for the Treatment of Low Back Pain: A Systematic Review of the Literature” analyzed data from several reputable medical journals to determine the effectiveness of spinal mobilization on patients living with lower back pain.

Six randomized control trials were included for review and thoroughly assessed by the researchers. Results were overwhelmingly positive for the success of spinal mobilization. The conclusion is as follows:

“Based on the findings of this systematic review there is evidence to support the use of spinal mobilization by physical therapists in clinical practice. Physical therapy spinal mobilization appears to be a safe intervention that improves clinical outcomes for patients with low back pain.”

So, what’s the importance of this form of treatment?

Your spine is a complicated structure of vertebrae, discs, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves.

Therefore, it takes a delicate balance to make sure it is at its peak level of health and function.

This is why it is such an important form of treatment. If you are living with pain, you know how limiting it can be.

In order to make sure your spine is at its optimum health, you must achieve the following:

  • Good flexibility and balance with side-bending and rotation
  • Strong spinal and gluteus muscles
  • Strong abdominal and core muscles
  • Good posture and spinal curves

Our services can help you get there. If you are in pain, contact Madden & Gilbert Physical Therapy as soon as possible.
