STICK MOBILITY ​

For those that have been following me on social media over the past few weeks, would of seen the couple of videos & pictures that I have posted of me using some bright coloured orange sticks to get into some tricky poses. 

 

 

These bright coloured orange sticks are called ‘Stick Mobility’ & have been founded by Dennis Dunphy, Neal Valera, & Mitch Taylor, all of which have education in either human movement, rehabilitation, sports medicine & fitness. 

 

Together they created Stick Mobility, that is a system designed to help move our bodies in a much better way than ever.  It is a method that allows us to improve our range of movement & enhances our neuromuscular awareness. 

 

Mobility is the ability to move & move without restriction or pain.  Together mobility is a combination of flexibility, strength & motor control throughout the whole range of movement present at a joint.

 

What is neuromuscular training?  Many of us when exercising fail to include specific mobility training, when we complete mobility drills prior to a training session we stimulate the neuromuscular system, providing the nervous system to be more adaptable, generate a more fast & optimal muscle firing pattern & provide an increase in dynamic joint stability, allowing a decrease in joint forces & to establish new movement patterns and skills (Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy 2OOl;3l(ll):620-631).  This increase in neuromuscular awareness provides a decrease in the risk of injury as the joint becomes more stable when exercising. 

 

The human body has been designed with joints that can flex, extend, rotate & glide & with the use of neuromuscular control throughout your joints provides a resistance to injury.

 

With Stick Mobility you are able to move at your own pace, using your own strength & existing mobility to access your bodies full potential.  The sticks provide a base of support to help movement become easier & to allow the exercises to be held for longer.
