The way that the body moves and functions is both complex and unique.
The Joint-By-Joint Approach is a concept founded by Physical Therapist Gray Cook, which expresses the idea that each joint of the body tends to have a specific function focused either on mobility or stability, and the joints stack in an alternating pattern.
Mobility is the ability of a joint to move freely, while stability is the ability of a joint to maintain or return to proper alignment. And these joints working properly is vital to the body functioning optimally.
For example: if a mobile joint becomes stiff, then it can lead to a stable joint becoming more mobile, and can lead to instability and even injury.
The video explains this concept in more detail and with some ideas that can be applied right away.
