Active mobilization encompasses several soft tissue treatment and relaxation techniques. Active mobilization is performed by the Doctor by finding adhesions and trigger points in the muscles, applying pressure, and then actively or passively stretching the muscle under tension. Active mobilization is exceptional for overuse syndromes like tendonitis, fasciitis, and especially for athletes or others with chronic muscle tension.
Active mobilization can also utilize stretch techniques like PNF stretching (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching) which is a set of stretching techniques commonly used to enhance both active and passive range of motion with the ultimate goal being to optimize motor performance and rehabilitation. Active mobilization treatments are 30 minutes in length and are generally performed in a series of 10 treatments.
“Active mobilization is so different from the adjustments I received at other chiropractic offices, this really worked on my chronic knee pain.” ~ Bob R
