Mobility & Flexibility

Mobility & flexibility the human body retains a natural level to ensure all of its structures are functioning properly. The bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues work together to allow range of movement and maintaining proper fitness and a balanced nutrition can help keep the body functioning properly. Great mobility means to be able to execute functional movements with no restrictions in the range of motion (ROM). A flexible person can have core strength, balance, or coordination but not be able to perform the same functional movements as the person with great mobility. Remember that flexibility is a component of mobility, but extreme flexibility really is not required to perform functional movements. According to Dr. Alex Jimenez’s compilation of articles pertaining to mobility and flexibility, individuals who don’t stretch their body often can experience shortened or stiffened muscles which decreases their ability to move effectively.

When you suffer from joint or muscle pain, it is important to work on maintaining as much flexibility as possible. The more flexible you are, the less likely you will be to further injure yourself. One of the best ways to improve your flexibility is by stretching before you are active.

However, you need to warm up your muscles before you stretch. If you stretch first, you can actually injure yourself by pushing your joints too far. Spend a few minutes doing some light activity before you stretch. This can be as simple as a brisk walk or some basic calisthenics.
