Mobility & Flexibility

The human body has natural mobility and flexibility to ensure that all structures and functions are working properly. The bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues work together to allow a range of movement, agility, and speed. Maintaining proper fitness and balanced nutrition can help keep the human body working accordingly. Underlying conditions and injuries, including low back pain and sciatica, can tremendously affect an athlete.

Mobility refers to performing functional movements with no restrictions in range of motion (ROM). Flexibility can involve strength, balance, or coordination. A person with great flexibility may not perform the same functional movements as a person with great mobility. However, flexibility is a fundamental mobility component.

According to Dr. Alex Jimenezโ€™s collection of articles for athletes or individuals who donโ€™t stretch or exercise can experience shortened or stiffened muscles, often causing low back pain and sciatica.
