Mobility assessment 

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.
