This video demonstrates a range of Thoracic mobilising (articulatory) techniques with the patient in prone and different methods in sitting. The prone 'springing' technique can be used as a manipulation but can be too aggressive, so gentle application of the springing from the therapists body is very effective and comfortable. The first sitting technique introduces an extension component to the mobilising whilst introducing other components. How the therapist keeps the patient seated on the table is important to look out for. The last mobilising technique is a basic standard position which allows a well controlled combination of components to applied producing a good mobilising approach.
