Mobility vs Stability

Part 1 of a 3 part series….

The terms mobility and stability often get thrown around a lot. Most people have heard the terms, yet they don’t quite know what they mean. In this part 1 of a 3-part video series, I discuss the differences between mobility and stability.

Mobility refers to movement and a joints ability to move through a range of motion. Stability refers to control and a joints ability to maintain control of a joint position through movement.

In part 2 and 3 of this series, I will be discussing the impact that mobility and stability have on our posture as well as postural correction exercises you can do to help correct a few compensation mechanisms you may have adopted.
