Newton's first law of motion states that "An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force." Objects tend to "keep on doing what they're doing."
The Same Goes For Our Bodies
Mobility is the ability to safely perform normal bodily functions and human movements such as squatting, pushing, pulling, walking, and all other motions that are required to live a normal life. There is a common misconception that mobility equates to flexibility. Flexibility is an important component, but it is not the sole definition of mobility. Mobility requires flexibility, comfortability, and a degree of neuromuscular control. Having a healthy range of motion plays a massive role in preventing injuries and pain, and living a happy and healthy life.
The average human skeleton is passive. This means that it is pulled and adjusted by the muscles attached. As we grow and move through our lives, our muscles develop and form based on our habitual movements. Some muscles become tight and short, while others are inhibited and lengthened. The tighter the muscles become, the more stress it adds to our bones and joints.
Long Story Short: Mobility Affects Everything!
As mobility relates to strength, you will be stronger and safer lifting weight through a range of motion if your joints can comfortably reach the given position. You’ll be able to walk and run with ease, avoid future pain, and continue thriving when you are participating in healthy mobility practices.
Bodywork and Mobility
Massage and bodywork are amazing practices to increase and keep up with your functional range of motion. When working with a professional, they are able to assess your areas of stress, tension, current and past health, and much more. Then, after the initial assessment, they can come up with a plan that is perfectly suited for your body and lifestyle. This does wonders for your long-term health and physical wellbeing.
If you suffer from chronic pain, it may be a challenge to remain active and mobile. That’s where massage and bodywork come into play. Massage is a holistic health approach with many scientifically documented advantages. Massages involve applying various techniques to help those living with physical limitations, mobility issues, injuries, and other challenges. By consistently engaging with a massage and bodywork specialist you can count on fewer cramps, spasms, muscle pain, and restless body parts.
