neck mobility assessment and treatment
This video series from The Moballise Physiotherapy Clinic provides you with basic self-assessment, treatment and maintenance of your neck mobility. The neck mobility series videos are designed to be followed in sequential order for maximum benefit.
Begin with basic assessment of your joint mobility. There are many components that contribute to mobility and you will be led through assessment of each component. This will enable you to constantly and consistently monitor your mobility.
Progress to treatment of your mobility. This incorporates caring for the many components that comprise mobility. You will learn how to effectively, efficiently and brilliantly care for your mobility within your normal activities without wasting precious time during the day.
Rehabilitation of your mobility may be necessary following your treatment course. sometimes your symptomatic pain may cause you to lose strength around the joint. This will be improved to some extent whilst you are caring for your mobility. Further rehabilitation will increase strength and endurance, leading to improved resilience to future relapses of your initial symptoms.
The first step towards reducing your pain and improving your mobility is assessment. These videos are designed to guide you through basic assessment of the joints involved in mobility. Make a note of how each assessment feels so that you can repeat it and have some objective measure that shows how much your mobility is improving. The assessment videos are designed to be performed in order and will gradually lead you through assessments for general joint mobility, muscle condition and inflammation of muscular attachments to the bones of the joint.
