Mobility Assessment

Throughout life, we experience both injuries and issues related to the natural aging process that contribute to impaired balance and mobility. Regular assessment of mobility is essential to ensure that appropriate support is provided to help mitigate further injury and pain. and allow you to continue to do the things you love doing! 

 

We recommend a full-body mobility assessment completed by one of our exercise specialists. A set of tests is conducted to assess and measure the range of motion, flexibility, and stability of an individual’s joints and muscles. These tests are often performed to identify any limitations or imbalances in the body that may cause pain or injury during daily activities or exercise. Mobility tests can also help individuals understand their body’s strengths and weaknesses. This is a well-informed tool to be used by you, and your fitness coach to develop a personalized plan intended to improve your overall mobility and prevent future injuries. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Mobility tests are used to measure an individual’s range of motion, flexibility, and stability.

  • Several types of mobility tests target different areas of the body and require different equipment or assistance.
