Mobility Information

Many people of the age group of 4 to early teenage years enjoy doing activities like rolling around on the floor or doing somersualts and other gymnastic feats. After leaving the teenage years, the desire to do these activities lessens, but more than that, the ability to do these activities decreases. And, if you are astute, you may notice that your mobility or range of motion has decreased. For example, your ability to kick your leg may not be as high or your ability to move your arms in a circle is more difficult. Some say that this is aging. It is also a decrease in mobility. If nothing is done about it, the decrease in mobility continues to get worse. The body gets used to doing the same routine over and over and loses the agility to do other mobility functions. Doing the same few exercises may contribute to this. Walking on a treadmill and a few squates or reps with weights may help burn calories and keep a body trim, but limiting to the same few exercises may not help in keeping a good range of motion. This loss of mobility may be something that can be prevented or lessened.

A result of the decrease in mobility is the quality of life. Losing the range of mobility can mean the loss of the ability to get around and perform activities that you like to do. Some people have stated that the lack of maintaining mobility can result in the lack of sinovial fluid around the joints. This can result in the bone part of joints rubbing against each other causing joint pain. There is something that can be done about this progression. It is mobility exercises. Some people have looked at this phenomenon and discovered that types of movement can be incorporated into exercise routines and give people wider ranges of movement and a better quality of life. This can happen at most ages young and old. It has been refered to as rejuvinating youth in a body and a way of reducing the effects of aging. Exercises have even been developed for less mobile people such as those in wheel chairs. Some programs are specialized for hips or backs. The main emphasis, though, is that mobility and flexibiltiy can assist in a better quality of life. Take a look at some of the articles and programs listed on the page. Improve your quality of life and your mobility and flexibility. It does not take long to do this.
