Optimal mobility holds different meanings for everyone. Some just want to increase their daily activities to break their sedentary habits. Some find it a way to overcome physical discomfort and promote relaxation through stretching or mindfulness exercises such as yoga and tai chi. And for those recovering from injuries, it’s all about resuming functions and strength through exercises and therapy.
Mobility is more than the movements of body parts; it is a dynamic and coordinated interaction of the entire body. This can be accomplished through three fundamental stages: alignment, coordinated movement, and power development. Each stage plays a crucial role in maximising physical mobility and overall performance.
This stage is more than just a warm-up. It is about ensuring proper posture and alignment before you exercise. Good posture and alignment are essential because they allow for optimal biomechanics during movement. When your body is in a balanced position, it reduces unnecessary stress on your joints, muscles, and ligaments. This promotes efficient movement patterns and reduces the risk of injury. Proper alignment also ensures that your musculoskeletal system is in the best position to generate force, power, and mobility.
Brain-muscle coordination, facilitated by the central nervous system (CNS), is another crucial aspect of mobility. The CNS serves as the foundation for all three pillars of movement – sensory input, brain reactions, and motor output – responsible for coordinating muscle contractions, movement initiation, and control. When your CNS is in sync, it sends signals to your muscles, enabling them to contract and relax smoothly and in a coordinated manner. This coordination enhances movement efficiency and precision, allowing for better overall mobility.
During this stage, you engage in exercises and activities that target muscular strength and endurance to enhance your overall physical performance. Strength development involves increasing the force-generating capacity of your muscles through weightlifting, resistance training, or bodyweight exercises. Endurance development, on the other hand, involves improving your muscles’ ability to sustain prolonged activity through aerobic exercises like running, swimming, cycling, or HIIT which maximise your cardiovascular capability.
Without recognizing and embracing the three-stage approach, you may overlook the Alignment stage, skip Coordinated Movement, and miss the benefits of the Power Development. This limits your potential for optimal mobility, and increases the risk of imbalances and injuries. In the alignment stage, we offer a BIOMECHANICS ANALYSIS that helps identify any persistent problems, deviations, or imbalances in your body posture and alignment. With this valuable information, our specialists can provide targeted interventions, corrective exercises, and guidance to help you optimize your posture and alignment, setting a strong foundation for optimal mobility.
For the coordinated movement stage, we provide an ACTIVE BRAIN COORDINATION EXERCISE, which focuses on activating your CNS, training your brain and muscles to function together seamlessly, and a PERSONALISED CORRECTIVE EXERCISE session, which is tailored to address your specific weaknesses or imbalances. For the power development stage, we introduce a TESLA FORMER, a cutting-edge technology that utilises electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle growth, improving your overall muscular strength. In just 30 minutes, it is believed to provide results comparable to completing 30,000 squats or sit-ups.
Additionally, we offer a CRYOTHERAPY, which involves the use of sub-zero temperatures to promote muscle recovery and reduce inflammation. It is suitable for all who experience muscle soreness after workout. Furthermore, UNAM RESTAURANT personalises dishes in alignment with your unique body’s needs. The cuisine includes lean protein for muscle repair, quality complex carbs for sustained energy, and essential vitamins and minerals. Embracing an anti-inflammatory approach, it supports your journey towards optimal mobility and wellness. Whether you are looking to incorporate more physical activity into your routine, address pain resulting from lifestyle habits, or rehabilitate past injuries, our Mobilisation program has got you covered.
