The ‘Kimura’ Mobilization: a very effective mobilization technique for the posterior GH capsule
Here is a Dr. Spina original….I utilize this mobilization in cases of posterior glenohumeral joint fibrosis. I have also modified the technique to be used for anterior capsular restriction, as well as for mobilization of the hip capsule (I will eventually post these variations as well). I actually thought of this technique while practicing jiu-jitsu, which as most of you know is a ground fighting technique that emphasizes joint locks….which, when looked at through a manual therapists eyes, is just an aggressive mob 🙂
I have also added the sleeper stretch video post from a few weeks ago as the two techniques go hand in hand….enjoy.
