  1. 1. 11/26/2008 DEFINITION • Mobilizations: these are passive movements performed by therapist at a slow speed enough that the patient can stop the movement. • Manipulations: these are sudden movements performed with a high velocity, short amplitude motion such that the patient cannot prevent the B.ARUN.,MPT,CMPT,COHS motion. ORTHOPEDIC PHYSIOTHERAPY 26-11-2008 2 Terminology Terminology • Mobilization – passive joint movement for increasing ROM or decreasing pain • Self-Mobilization (Automobilization) – – Applied to joints & related soft tissues at varying self-stretching techniques that specifically use speeds & amplitudes using physiologic or accessory joint traction or glides that direct the stretch motions force to the joint capsule – Force is light enough that patient’s can stop the movement • Mobilization with Movement (MWM) – concurrent application of a sustained accessory mobilization applied by a clinician • Manipulation – passive joint movement for & an active physiologic movement to end increasing joint mobility range applied by the patient – Applied in a pain-free direction – Incorporates a sudden, forceful thrust that is beyond the patient’s control Terminology Terminology • Physiologic Movements – movements done • Arthrokinematics – motions of bone surfaces within the voluntarily joint – 5 motions - Roll, Slide, Spin, Compression, Distraction – Osteokinematics – motions of the bones • Muscle energy – use an active contraction of deep muscles that attach near the joint & whose line of pull can • Accessory Movements – movements within the cause the desired accessory motion joint & surrounding tissues that are necessary for – Clinician stabilizes segment on which the distal aspect of the normal ROM, but can not be voluntarily performed muscle attaches; command for an isometric contraction of the muscle is given, which causes the accessory movement of the joint – Component motions – motions that accompany active motion, but are not under voluntary control • Thrust – high-velocity, short-amplitude motion that the • Ex: Upward rotation of scapula & rotation of clavicle that occur patient can not prevent with shoulder flexion – Performed at end of pathologic limit of the joint (snap adhesions, stimulate joint receptors) – Joint play – motions that occur within the joint – Techniques that are beyond the scope of our practice! • Determined by joint capsule’s laxity • Can be demonstrated passively, but not performed actively 1

  4. 4. 11/26/2008 Maitland Joint Mobilization Grades of Movement in a Grading Scale Normal and a Restricted Joint • Grading based on amplitude of movement & where within available ROM the force is applied. • Grade I – Small amplitude rhythmic oscillating movement at the beginning of range of movement – Manage pain and spasm • Grade II – Large amplitude rhythmic oscillating movement within midrange of movement – Manage pain and spasm • Grades I & II – often used before & after treatment Adapted by permission from G. Maitland 1991. with grades III & IV • Grade III – Large amplitude rhythmic oscillating movement up to OSCILLATION MOBILIZATION point of limitation (PL) in range of movement – Used to gain motion within the joint – Stretches capsule & CT structures • Grade IV – Small amplitude rhythmic oscillating movement at very end range of movement – Used to gain motion within the joint • Used when resistance limits movement in absence of pain • Grade V – (thrust technique) - Manipulation – Small amplitude, quick thrust at end of range – Accompanied by popping sound (manipulation) Beginning Pathologic Normal – Velocity vs. force range of al limit of limit of – Requires training movement movement movement 26-11-2008 22 Kaltenborn Traction Grading SUSTAINED MOBILIZATION • Grade I (loosen) – Neutralizes pressure in joint without actual surface separation – Produce pain relief by reducing compressive forces • Grade II (tighten or take up slack) – Separates articulating surfaces, taking up slack or eliminating play within joint capsule – Used initially to determine joint sensitivity • Grade III (stretch) – Involves stretching of soft tissue surrounding joint – Increase mobility in hypomobile joint 26-11-2008 24 4
