Can I have too much mobility?Sep 11, 2019
Is it possible to have too much flexibility? 🤔
Often has health and fitness professionals we encounter people with pain, stiffness, and tightness.
One of the go-to techniques is to give our patients or clients stretching or mobility exercises to address this, but what about those clients that have too much flexibility.
Flexibility like everything we work with needs to be in the goldilocks zone...just right.
Too little flexibility can result in difficulty expressing movement effectively. Too much flexibility can result in an individual who might not have the strength and control to look after this range of motion effectively.
That's why at Movement Assessment Technologies we use the latest evidence-based testing on The MAT to measure our patients and clients in how they move so that we know exactly whether they need more flexibility, more strength, more balance etc to be able to feel better, move better or perform better.
Make sure you're not guessing with the people you work with. ⚡Go to www.matassessment.com to learn more about how you can start implementing the MAT in your practice.
