1. The Physiology of Mobility
This chapter details where exercise for mobility fits within the exercise framework. It describes soft tissue and joint mobility restrictions and discusses factors that aid in regaining mobility in order to provide the background for prescribing exercise to enhance mobility.
2. Assessing the Need for and Progress with Mobility Exercise
This chapter describes ways to assess joint range of motion, muscle and soft tissue length, and joint play and end feels. Assessment of these aspects will lay the groundwork for prescribing exercise to enhance joint and soft tissue mobility.
3. Exercises for Mobility
This chapter describes exercises that would improve joint and soft tissue mobility. It includes indications and contraindications, types of exercise, and exercise parameters.
4. Case Application of Exercises for Mobility
This chapter describes a case of a patient with decreased motion in her knee after a total knee arthroplasty. It includes a demonstration of assessment and outcome measurement techniques and exercise prescription for mobility.
