What is the difference between Ppivm and Paivm?

* PPIVMS: Determine the direction of a Rotational hypomobility that coincides with the direction (left or right) of the movement diagnosis. * PAIVMS: May find facets on one side more prominent posteriorly and on the other side more anterior (deep).

How does joint Mobilisation reduce pain?

Joint and soft tissue mobilisations can both be used to treat pain. Pain can occur in muscles due to an increase of tension and tightness. Soft tissue mobilisation manipulates tissues so that blood circulation is increased to an area. Increased blood circulation allows muscles to relax and muscle fibres to be loosened.

How does joint mobilization reduce pain?

Grade 2 joint mobilizations are large-amplitude movements that carry halfway into the joint range of motion, occupying any part of the range and yet not reaching the end range. This technique can be used to treat joint stiffness by increasing range of motion and joint pain by stimulating mechanoreceptors.
