Basic concept of Maitland Technique?
The Maitland concept uses passive and accessory mobilisations of the spine to treat mechanical pain and stiffness.
Why go for Maitland Technique?
The type of mobilisation used depends on the severity, irritability and nature of the spinal pain.
The mobilisations create movement within the joints of the spine which reduces stiffness and makes
movement easier. The increased ease of movement also reduces pain.
Where to utilise Maitland Technique?
Your physiotherapist will assess your back pain and decide which type of treatment is appropriate.
It is generally individuals with mechanical back pain, such as joint pain and stiffness,
who benefit from treatment outlined in the maitland concept.
