Increase Your Range of Motion
- Through experiencing a current or past injury or surgery. When you are injured or have surgery, your body develops a fear of re-injury and a memory of protection on the cellular level to protect the part of your body that was injured or cut into. As a result, ROM is inhibited.
- Unprocessed emotions store in some part of your body and you can experience this as a decrease in range of motion. Emotions are chemicals that dock onto cell receptors. If the emotional chemicals aren’t released naturally from the receptors, your body will find a way to let you know. You will most likely experience a decrease in ROM in the part of your body you use frequently in order for your body to get your attention.
- Your body is holding tightness or stiffness in the cell receptors and the cell membranes.
