Physical Therapy: Corrective exercises and Mobility skills
Mobility problems are movement dysfunctions. They are caused by:
- Inappropriate movement
- The result of a poorly managed injury
- Stress: physical, emotional, or postural
- Inefficient stabilization
Mobilization improves your capacity to move and perform efficiently. During treatment you will learn mobilization techniques to address short and stiff muscles, soft tissue and joint capsule restriction, motor control problems, and joint range of motion limitations.
People must understand, however, that applying mobilization techniques will not resolve all of their problems immediately. It’s an everyday practice. When much of a person’s day is spent sitting in cars, working at a desk, or other destructive postures, it’s not possible to train at a high level in the gym.
There’s a lot of movement to manage there, and recovering it will take time. But if we understand how to fix poor biomechanics and move well, we can avoid compromising our tissues. Our goal is to get into good positions, improve your movement patterns, and resolve pain. Dysfunctional movement patterns need to be corrected and functional patterns reinforced.
