Slightly bent positions like the forward head posture may cause mechanical neck pain, cause a greater load by affecting the mobilization order of the muscles operating when the arm is raised, and restrict the range of motion The limitations mobilisaton this study are as follows.

Due to anatomical position and other mobilisaation limitations not all peripheral or spinal joints can be subjected to all of the types of glide.
