What are normal ranges of motion?

Mark

Here at Momentum Physio at Locker 27 we are asked this question on a regular basis and the honest answer is, “it depends” everyone is unique. We differ in limb length, height, weight and joint positions, some of us may have suffered injuries or had operations all of which will affect our flexibility and strength.

Having said that I believe that there are a basic range of motions and positions that everyone should be able to achieve (or get close too!) Research shows that a loss of range in particular joints has a strong correlation to injuries. Check the video link to see how flexible you are.
