Mobility is defined as the ability to move or be moved freely and easily. Nowadays, our bodies can’t withstand certain movements or activities of daily living due to the effects of technology. The constant use of electrical devices have caused our bodies to adapt to poor posture and limit the movement of our joints. This is why our bodies feel stiff and tight when performing activities of daily living. Our bodies no longer have the flexibility or mobility to do everyday movements because have become use to the imbalances of our bodies.
A mobility routine should be done every morning to help warm up the body and relieve any tightness from sleeping. It helps increase the mobility and flexibility of our muscles and joints. Since we can’t control our posture while sleeping, we can reduce the risk of any injuries by warming up the body before starting the day.
Here is a Morning Mobility Routine video that targets the entire body to help get the body moving.

Do you have trouble deciding when to use ice or heat? Here’s Melanie explaining when to use each modality.
When should I use ice?
Apply ice for when your muscles or joints are painful and achy. The goal is to reduce inflammation in the injured muscle or joint.
When should I use heat?
