Joints can become fixated, ie. the internal surfaces are stuck together, so that the joint is unable to move freely. Fixated joints can be painful, and they create tension in nearby muscles. Releasing compressed joints often relaxes the surrounding muscles.
Two or more adjacent bones are slowly moved in different directions. There's no fast thrusting, no sudden moves. Slower movement allows the joint to be taken further, to stretch and massage the connective tissue in and around the joint. This creates a deeper release, and more lasting changes.
I can release tension from joints throughout your body: cranium, neck, ankles, feet, pelvis, wrists, ribs, atlas and axis, spine.
CranioSacral Therapy mobilizes the joints in the cranium, spine and pelvis.
Mobilizing the joints in the foot. Foot and ankle joint mobilization can allow fallen arches to lift and become more
springy, better at shock absorption. Feet that have been injured often have fixated (stuck) joints.
Hilton's Law The same trunks of nerves whose branches supply the groups of muscles moving a joint, furnish also a distribution of nerves to the skin over the insertion of the same muscles, and the interior of the joint receives its nerves from the same source.
- John Hilton, FRS, FRCS
Nerves that sense the pressure inside a joint, and nerves that tell muscles around the joint to contract or relax, are part of the same nerve trunk. They send information to each other
