Despite the fact that HBOT provides a competent treatment of spinal disorder, a more common method might appeal to therapists looking for a more hands-on alternative. Suggesting that the traditional tried and tested method generally works best, Luklinski said that mobilization is a procedure involving a small oscillatory movement of varying amplitudes combined with a manual rotation and traction movement -it is a painless and essential procedure in spinal treatment.
Although most chiropractors and osteopaths rely on manipulation over mobilization, Luklinski noted that mobilization is generally the most effective and all around safest procedure for treating chronic spinal conditions such as correcting slippage or a herniated disk.
Mobilization is by far the most effective procedure for treating serious spinal disorders, he noted. This achieves the aim of freeing a trapped nerve or restoring a slipped disk by gently restoring the passive mobility of the affected spinal joints through carefully applied pressure and/or oscillatory movement. It cannot cause the patient any harm and always produces good results, whereas the clunk-click approach of manipulation can often be contraindicated by many conditions and generally should not be performed.
