Whatever your movement and flexibility levels may be, spending time each day or week to work on your mobility and strength can help to improve your overall health. Read on to find out 4 ways to maximize your mobility.

Get stretching

Maximizing your mobility isn’t just about building muscle mass. Even if a full-body workout is out of your scope, focusing your attention on stretching can be just as effective and important for looking after your joints and muscles. Without regular stretching, muscles can shorten and become tight. From standing down rolls to gentle sitting stretches, find the ones that work best for you.

Not only does stretching help with overall flexibility, but it can also alleviate aches, pains and stiffness. So start small, and little by little, work up to bigger moves and stretches. Be sure to take care in sensitive areas and avoid any exercises that cause pain.

Explore your options

Stretching and static holds aren’t the only way we can improve mobility, although they’re a great place to start. If you’re experiencing ongoing problems then seeking professional advice can open up the door to all sorts of new fitness alternatives. Depending on your condition and your preferences, many people wanting to build up their strength and improve mobility have benefitted from specialized sessions including one-to-one physiotherapy and hydrotherapy. Search online for sessions in your area, and in the meantime you can read more about the benefits of improving mobility in the elderly here.

Know your limits

Being able to explore and expand your full range of mobility is important, but it’s also wise to acknowledge the limitations that can come with aging or specific health conditions. In order to improve mobility levels safely, little and often is the best rule of thumb when exercising or stretching. Listen to your body and pay attention to your movement and how you feel during each pose or stretch. Look for routines that address your unique restrictions and speak to a personal trainer or specialist to find modified stretches and work outs designed to accommodate your individual needs.

 

Keep it up

Improving mobility is a process and a lifestyle that will take time. Nothing is going to change overnight, but by sticking to practical tips like the ones above and applying consistency and patience, the benefits will start to show.

Being healthy, happy, and safe in your home should be a priority, especially as we get older. If you’re experiencing mobility issues then a stairlift could improve your quality of life.
