Your physical therapist at REPAIR SI can use this information to determine the training programs that will work best for your abilities.

There are more than 300 joints throughout your body, which is where bones connect to allow for movement. When a joint has reduced mobility, it can interfere with your quality of life by preventing you from carrying out your daily activities, such as extending your arm to reach up to a top shelf or bending your knees to climb stairs in your home. But with the help of targeted physical therapy techniques like joint mobilization, your joints can properly function without restriction.

We don’t often give much thought to the position of our necks and backs as we go through our day-to-day routines, from sitting on a chair for extensive periods of time at work to standing and looking down at our phones. But poor posture can be the root cause of pain and reduced mobility throughout your body.
