To be blunt, stretching is not an effective way to restore your body’s range of motion. When you follow traditional stretching practices, all you do is passively pull on your tissues. But it turns out there is a lot more to restore full range of motion than that.

First, stretching doesn’t get your brain involved. And even if your body has full range of motion, you don’t have true “mobility” until your brain develops the motor control to actually express that range of motion. Also, unlike mobilizing, stretching does not look at your body as a system. It neglects key factors like your joints and sliding surfaces.

We define mobility in two different ways

First, you should be able to put your body into any pose or shape that is normal for a human being. In other words, you should have access to the full range of motion for the human body. But having access is not enough.

The second aspect of mobility is that you need to actually be able to achieve those positions in real life. In other words, you need to have to motor control skills to actualize your complete range of motion.

Mobility takes a systems approach to restoring your range of motion. It accounts for all the varied ways your body can lose its natural ability to move. Mobilizing restores your joints, sliding surfaces, soft tissue, and even blood flow. Plus it helps you develop the motor control you need to express that range of motion in your daily life.
