FMS: Identifying and Tackling Mobility Issues

 

 

Lee Burton

 

 

 

OVERVIEW

Too often people have difficulty accessing fundamental movements that are required for not only higher-level activities but also simple daily tasks. This is becoming a problem more and more in our society. In order to combat this, we must first identify individuals with these issues, and then provide the best interventions possible. We must ensure there is a requisite amount of mobility, stability and strength to move well. By following this model, we are setting the stage for long-term sustainability and vitality. During this pre-conference session, the focus will be on why it is important to first identify and establish mobility. There will be specific screens and tests presented and demonstrated that serve to establish mobility baselines within movement patterns. Specific techniques and progressions to enhance mobility and flexibility problems will also be presented and demonstrated.
