But in cases where a joint is abnormal or hindered the essence of manipulation is directed at the recovery of the underlying cause by massage and passive movements and as far as is possible the restoration of the joint to it's normality.
Mobilisation (sometimes known as active rest) is the key to a speedy recovery. With active movements by the patient taking the injured part through its full pain free range, without any weight or resistance. Not only does this work the muscles and so prevent atrophy, but it also shows the therapist the safe range to work within.
