Are you coming back from an injury and not sure exactly where to start? Afraid to continue with your strengthening program because of limited mobility? Are you in a constant state of re-injuring and falling into the perpetual pain cycle?
Chances are, you are not in a correct regression pattern/ rehabilitation plan.
After an injury, we have a tendency to pick up where we left off. Now you are left with decreased mobility which will lead to altered joint mechanics. With movement limitations, muscles that are meant to stabilize are now unintentionally acting as prime movers. This is referred to as over-compensation.
Mobility is often confused with flexibility. The difference between the two is mobility works against gravity and flexibility works with gravity. Mobility training is what needs to be done to keep synovial joints pliable and strong.
Mobility before strength is of the utmost importance. Strength training, without mobility training, decreases load capacities on already dysfunctional joints and strengthens muscular imbalances. A highly functioning range of motion allows you to move more freely. In conjunction with the proper strength training plan, this will increase your resistance to injury.
We now accept insurance and offer direct billing to your insurance provider to ensure a smooth transition from your orthopaedic injury to regaining your functional strength.
