ASPIRE55 Webinar Talkshow: How will CARs (Controlled Articular Rotations) improve your mobility and balance? (11 Jun 2020)
Our Speaker: Mr Samuel Oliver Lo
Sam is young, dynamic and aims to change the way we think about Rehabilitation. He is a Rehab and Performance Trainer, and regular Senior Trainer at the ASPIRE55 Clubhouses.
What is Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs)?
CARs are one of the tools that help increase joint mobility. By using active rotational movements at each individual joint to stimulate articular adaptations, the range, control, and stability at the joint can be improved.
Example of CARs (Please perform these exercises gently. Remember to listen to your body and stay safe)
CAR in neck joint
Tips: Take it slow and perform the rotation up to your maximum, stopping briefly at each quarter points.
CAR in shoulder joint
Tips: Make a fist for better control and keep your arm straight.
CAR in knee joint
Tips: keep your knee bent with heel on the floor, remember to keep your knee pointing forward.
