Definition of Osteopathic Articulation
The word articulation originates from the latin meaning ‘jointed’ or ‘divided into joints’. Articulation is the cornerstone of most manual therapies, including osteopathy, physiotherapy, chiropractic, sports therapy and massage therapy.
Articulation uses a low amplitude (short distance) and low to moderate velocity (speed) of movement within the patients pain free range of motion while in dysfunction. This aids the bodies natural lubricating system (synovial fluid) to embalm the joint which increased range of motion, decreased pain or both (ideally).
Articulation techniques have been shown to help relieve pain and increase range of motion in joints.
