Basics of Mobilization

Basics of Mobilization

I mobilize every day. Or at least.... most days.... But that's beside the point. What I am trying to say, in a less-than-elegant manner, is that mobilization is important, and it should be done often. My car, my desk, and my kitchen table all contribute to some sticky spots in my Range of Motion that I need to work out on a regular basis. BUT. I have a different set of tools than most of the people reading this. I have a pretty strong knowledge of anatomy and access to clinicians and soft-tissue tools that aren't commonplace.

But again.... that's beside the point. The POINT is that you don't need any sort of advanced anatomy knowledge, fancy or expensive tools, or to pay $50 every time you have sore calf muscles. You are perfectly capable of doing regular maintenance on yourself. All it takes is a simple understanding of a few simple principles to get you heading in the right direction. That is what I outline in this post.
