Manual therapy techniques for the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, as well as shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle joints, made more effective with mobilization belts.
Mobilization belts are essential tools for manual therapists, enhancing the specificity and duration of mobilization techniques. Yousef Ghandour, PT, details techniques with detailed demonstration of patient position, belt placement and mobilization technique. Use of mobilization belts permit multi-directional techniques by positioning and supporting an area while the clinician performs a technique in a different direction.
This DVD shows how mobilization belts help therapists by supporting the patient's body and heavy limbs, providing added specificity to treatments, stabilizing adjacent body parts, providing artificial locking to add specificity with mobilization, freeing hands to treat joint or muscle, and providing static stretch.
