What is Mobility and Flexibility Training

Mobility, Corrective Exercises, and Range of Motion

How do we improve mobility?

  1. For range of motion we use flossing, joint distraction, and gapping.
  2. For Stability and Muscle Control: we use balance stabilizing tools, yoga, exercise tubing, and Cook bands.
  3. Fascial Release: we use the battle star, nova balls, lacrosse balls, and trigger point.
  4. Muscle activation and corrective exercises: we use isometric exercises and exercise bands to improve the mind muscle connection.
  5. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching: to retrain the brain’s connection with muscle to improve the brain’s confidence and control over muscles with allows for improvement of flexibility.
  6. Partner Stretching: through using a coach to help stabilize and direct stretches, the athlete is able to improve the function the stretch and really mobilize the intended muscle and joint group.

Flexibility Defined: Relative ease and degree bones can move with respect to one another based on the tightness of the related muscle groups.

We measure current mobility and static motor control through screening.  We improve the tightened areas through our mobility programming to mobilize and strengthen the tight and weakened areas.   We find and address all the elements that limit movement and performance including short and tight muscles, soft tissue restriction, joint capsule restriction, motor control problems, joint range of motion dysfunction, and neural dynamic limitation. In short, mobilization is a tool to globally address movement and performance problems.

Humans have tightness where the body senses weaknesses or lack of strength in a muscle. To improve mobility, we have to reprogram the brain’s connection with deactivated muscles. In essence, we force the brain to create new software (neural pathways to control muscles), so that the body can allocate new hardware (muscle tissue.)

Mobility Defined: the requisite flexibility and neurological control (coordination) to enable specific joints and muscles to perform a specific exercise correctly.

  1. Now i know that Flexibility should be the first thing to do, right? so if then i was wondering why my friend recommended me to use his mobility bar. am i doing the wrong thing? i have started first on my mobility training not the flexibility one first? and i have researched some of the mobility bar out in the web and i’d like to ask any suggestions and recommendations from you, glad to hear it soon! thanks 🙂
