How We Treat
Leverage your mobility in a whole new way. Our bodies move dynamically in 3 planes of movement, why shouldn't your mobility program do the same? Adequate mobility is important to be able to have proper movement efficiency and perform at your peak ability. Mobility is different than flexibility. Flexibility refers to the ability of a muscle, or a group of muscles, or tendons to lengthen and stretch. Mobility is dynamic; it means your muscles are lengthening and shortening while your joints are also moving. Your muscles and joints work together to move your body through a wide range of motion which requires adequate strength and control. Mobility is having strength within your flexibility. Poor mobility can put you at higher risk for injury and limit your performance. Conversely, injuries often restrict your mobility. Over time, restricted mobility can lead to joint degeneration and pain.
A method of stretching that elongates soft tissues just past the point of tissue resistance and then held in the lengthened position with a sustained stretch force over a period of time. Best done for cool downs and to increase muscle length in tight tissues.
A method that involves moving a soft tissue gradually to increase reach, speed of movement, or both by using controlled leg, arm, or trunk swings that gently take the tissues to the end range. Best done as an active warm-up prior to activity.
PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation)
is a more advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. It is also excellent for targeting specific muscle groups, and as well as increasing flexibility, it also improves muscular strength.
Self Myofasical Techniques
Foam rolling, lacrosse ball, and other tools can be used for mobility work.
