Joint mobilization is one of integral part in the application of manual therapy. In the development of the physiotherapy profession, the term of joint mobilization began to be used which was the development manipulative manual therapy with gradual force. In practice, physiotherapists often rely on only one well-known method to practice manual mobilization therapy and / or compare with other well-known methods. In general, the manual joint mobilization therapy was first developed by Kaltenborn, then followed by Maitland and then came another manual therapy with the approach of each of its inventors such as McKenzie and Mulligan. From the results of previous research articles, it was found that all joint mobilization manual therapy techniques did not have any differences in treating musculoskeletal disorders in general. Joint mobilization by any method still gives good results in general musculoskeletal disorders. The basic theories of manual therapy such as arthrokinematics, osteokinematics, grade of mobilization and their development needs to be well understood so as not to be mistaken in its clinical application in patients. The effects of manual therapy on musculoskeletal disorders are still theoretically relevant to the results of recent studies.
