3. Joint and Muscle Mobility
In this chapter, you will review the research on joint and muscle mobility interventions. You will go over many options for patients to self-perform joint mobilizations, soft-tissue mobilization, and stretches. You will learn how self-performed mobilizations can be as effective, or in some cases more effective, than clinician-assisted mobilizations. Additional resources will be provided to show how to adapt clinician-applied mobilizations into creative patient self-mobilizations.
