Mobility & flexibility the human body retains a natural level to ensure all of its structures are functioning properly. The bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues work together to allow for proper movement and maintaining proper fitness and balanced nutrition can help keep the body functioning properly. Great mobility means executing functional movements with no restrictions in the range of motion (ROM).
A flexible person can have core strength, balance, or coordination but cannot perform the same functional movements as a person with great mobility. Remember that flexibility is a mobility component, but extreme flexibility really is not required to perform functional movements. According to Dr. Alex Jimenezâ€™s compilation of articles on mobility and flexibility, individuals who donâ€™t stretch their body often can experience shortened or stiffened muscles, decreasing their ability to move effectively.
