Mobility & Balance Performance Evaluation Tests

Mobility & Balance Performance Evaluation Tests post thumbnail

🔰Mobility is the ability to perform a joint action through a series of movements. There are two groups of muscles at work in every movement: The protagonist muscles, which make the movement happen, and the opposing muscles, which determine the degree of mobility and balance, are the antagonist muscles.

If athletes are to learn and utilise effectively the techniques associated with their events and are to avoid injury successfully, they require a good level of mobility. An athlete will find it difficult, if not impossible, to learn a new technique if their mobility is poor. A good level of mobility is also essential for the development of specific conditioning (ie the application of strength or speed in a particular event).

🔰Balance is the ability to maintain balance when standing or moving (i.e. not falling over) through the coordinated actions of our sensory functions (sight, hearing and proprioception).

Balance comprises of static balance (the ability to retain the centre of mass above the base of support in a stationary position) and dynamic balance (the ability to maintain balance under changing conditions of body movement).

Dr .Lalit Choudhary
Hii everyone, I'm Dr Lalit Choudhary PT. Born and brought up in delhi. Practicing as a professional PHYSIOTHERAPIST. As a therapist I love to interact with others and and get myself updated regarding all the social issues which are leading my countrymen to distress themselves. Yes, I agree that Iam a workaholic but my work gives me immense pleasure but there are sometimes when I feel stressed up so to relax myself I travel to new places, meet new people and try to adopt their culture. Most of the time I like to travel hills as it helps me to relax and enjoy our nature beauty. For being a good therapist and to deal with all the difficulties I always prefer to be good listener and have good patience that is what my strength is. I also work as a social worker and the Founder of thesocialphysiofitnessclub and PHYSIO FIT INDIA. In last I just want to say that " I believe that physical therapy is not just a therapy but actually a remedy which not only make you physically fit but also adds happiness, joy and more days to your life." So don't just sit and thought now it's time to stand and work on yourself.
