Mobility & Flexibility

Dr. Jimenez Chiropractor and Physical Therapy Team: Mobility & flexibility of the human body retains a natural level to ensure all of its structures are functioning properly. The bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues work together to allow a range of movement, and maintaining proper fitness and balanced nutrition can help keep the body functioning properly. Great mobility means being able to execute functional movements with no restrictions in the range of motion (ROM).

A flexible person can have core strength, balance, or coordination but not be able to perform the same functional movements as a person with great mobility. Remember that flexibility is a component of mobility, but extreme flexibility really is not required to perform functional movements.

According to Dr. Alex Jimenez’s compilation of articles pertaining to mobility and flexibility, individuals who don’t stretch their body often can experience shortened or stiffened muscles which decrease their ability to move effectively. For more information, please feel free to contact us at (915) 850-0900 or text to call Dr. Jimenez personally at (915) 540-8444.
