Dr James Beaver Mennell (1880-1957) is considered to be the father of modern manual therapy techniques. In his seminal work The Science and Art of Joint Manipulation, Mennell describes the mobilization techniques that form the foundation of modern manual therapeutic techniques used by many physiotherapists today. He clearly understood the synovial joint as a distinct anatomical entity, demonstrating that by using skilled purposeful passive movement with a gradient of force as a treatment intervention, it was possible to restore normal joint function.
