One year ago we added FRC certifications to our list of tools @peakhealthcalgary, it was a long year of shifting paradigms and teaching patients the science behind mobility... Been rolling for years without gains? Are you passive stretching only? Want to know how to add more 🧠 neuro intent to end range?

MOBILITY VS FLEXIBILITY by @movementupgraded .
Mobility and flexibility are not the same.
▪️Mobility ➡️ the amount of active, useable range of motion you have.
▪️Flexibility ➡️ the amount of passive range of motion you have.
Most yogis, dancers, and those who do a lot of stretching, have adequate (or amazing) flexibility. Unfortunately, they don't always have great mobility.
This picture shows the difference between the two concepts perfectly (flexibility on the left, mobility on the right).
Ideally, there shouldn't be a significant difference between the two. Why? Because when there is, it's a liability and your risk for injury increases. If you find your body in a position/range of motion that you don't have control over, it may not end well.
As @mosesbernard brilliantly says, "Having great flexibility without control is like you have a car that goes 100mph, but brakes that only work to 60mph. How safe is it to be driving that car at 100 mph?"
Move Better, Be Better
