Part 1: Joint Mobility:
Joint mobility focuses on using dynamic range of motion drills to wash and lubricate the joints with synovial fluid (joint nutrition) in order to restore and coordinate proper range of motion. This method of training does not deform the soft-tissues, merely takes them through their normal range of motion in an attempt to relax them by removing adhesions.
While stretching will move into and beyond tension, joint mobility training moves to slowly release the tension by gently “brushing by it.” Joint mobility exercise is not a flexibility program, it is a joint strengthening program. Our tissue flexibility is determined by our degree of mobility at the two adjacent joints. If one is very limited in their joint mobility, they will also be very tight muscularly.
Practice of joint mobility will continue to unlock your movement potential.
Joint mobility practice will pay off based on what you put into it. It can be a valuable warm-up method, or a lifelong pursuit of pain-free, sophisticated movement.
Part 2: Functional Exercise to influence posture:
Most people don’t realize how interconnected the human body really is. with one specific area depending on many others in order to function. Chronic (aches) pain may be caused by an imbalance somewhere other than where pain is occurring, and like a domino effect those imbalances filter down from one part of the body to the next, affecting movement and stability.
Corrective exercise falls between physical therapy and personal training; corrective exercise uses a “whole body” approach. These exercises improve your body’s biomechanics and remove the negative stresses from your body. It’s these negative stresses that cause ongoing aches and pain and affect the ability to move freely & normally.
Through corrective exercises you are reintroduced to proper function of the body, which in turn restores correct structure. When your body stops compensating for imbalances you are able to move freely and your pain disappears.
