Our user asked: With what conditions do PT use joint mobilization as a treatment technique? with which peripheral joints? what grades of mobilization is it use for what duration? Is there any legal, ethical or reimbursement considerations exist in the facility state in which they practice regarding joint mobilizations? when is manual traction use for which joints?

Ask a PT response: In regards to your questions: 
With what conditions do PT use joint mobilization as a treatment technique? It is utilized for patients with conditions that have pain or stiffness dominant conditions. 
 
with which peripheral joints? Joint mobs can be applied to all peripheral joints
 
what grades of mobilization is it use for what duration? this is going t depend on the patient, patient's history, condition, goal of performing mob, etc...
 
Is there any legal, ethical or reimbursement considerations exist in the facility state in which they practice regarding joint mobilizations? Joint mobs are an appropriate technique to perform. Some therapists may be restricted with performing Grade V mobs (manipulation) based on the sate which they practice in.
 
when is manual traction use for which joints? traction can be utilized on any joint. Again it is based on the evaluation and assessment of the patient to determine if traction would be appropriate to utilize 
 
If you have additional questions - Maitland Australian Physiotherapy Seminars is a great resource. "
