The first of three keys to human movement we will be discussing is MOBILITY. The dictionary defines mobility as the ability to move or be moved freely and easily. At Chirofit we look at mobility in the body as movement in the joints. Improper motion in the joints can cause pain, stiffness, and tightness. Have you ever had a pain in your neck or back that when you extend, it causes a sharp pain that almost takes your breath away? This typically is a joint that isn’t moving optimally and your body is giving you the signals to let you know your body is not moving at its maximal potential. As chiropractors we use the chiropractic adjustment to improve motion in joints that have decreased or have abnormal movement due to trauma or micro trauma. Trauma can be a car accident, a fall or a hit from a sport. Micro trauma typically is from chronic improper posture or frequent improper movements such as sitting on a computer all day or lifting weights improperly over an extended period of time. The chiropractic adjustment can treat these joints that are not moving properly and restore proper movement. Improving mobility along with the other two keys of human movement allow the body to move optimally. The next key of human movement we will be discussing is FLEXIBILITY.
