Perry Nickelston Mobility – Mobility Restrictions – Joint Centration
Top Six Mobility Restrictions & Why They Keep Locking Down
Do you have a something that keeps locking down no matter how much you foam roll it? Why is that happening? Is there a way to permanently fix it? Perry Nickelston addresses this problem of the six most common mobility restrictions … and what to do about them.
“The control of that movement, especially under changes of position and changes of environment—emotional and physical—is called stability. You can have all of the mobility you want, but if you don’t lock that in with stabilization to control it, it doesn’t matter how much mobility you have.
“Think about this like a slingshot. The elasticity of the band represents mobility. That’s like the elastic recoil of the muscles and fascia of the body, but you’re not going to be able to release that energy. It’s really potential energy.” ~Perry Nickelston

Changed the way I think about injury! This is a great lecture, not just because of the amazing information Perry provides but the stories he uses to illustrate them. When an experienced, knowledgeable person is also a great teacher you need to listen to everything they say!

Dr. Perry’s RAIL system: simplifying the complex. Perry Nickelston is extremely enthusiastic about evaluating and treating movement dysfunction, and his RAIL approach is an excellent integration of the principles of both SFMA and NKT
