Physiotherapy and Manipulation

Manipulation & Mobilisation are manual techniques used by physios in order to improve the mobility and function of your soft tissues, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Manipulation is usually performed as a very fast, accurate movement on the neck or back area and provides pain relief and increases flexibility.


Manipulation techniques as part of manual therapy to improve an individual's movement potential is within a physiotherapist's scope of practice.

How difference between stretching and Manipulation?
Stretching is a mechanical process of lengthening soft tissue. All soft tissues have certain fundamental properties, including the property of “creep.” Creep describes the gradual change in shape (deformation) of a tissue that occurs when it is subjected to a force that is applied to the tissue in a slow and sustained manner.
