Unlocking the Power of Mobility

How MSO Physio’s Mobility classes can help.

In life, movement is our greatest ally. From the simplest tasks like reaching for a cup of coffee to the more complex manoeuvres involved in sports. However, for many individuals, mobility can become a challenge due to injury, illness, or the natural ageing process. This is where MSO Physio can help, offering 1-2-1 mobility sessions and small group mobility classes, which aim to help individuals reclaim their freedom of movement and live life to the fullest.

Mobility is more than just the ability to move from point A to point B. It encompasses a wide range of movements including flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination. These elements work together to allow us to perform daily activities with ease and efficiency. When any of these components are compromised, it can lead to limitations in mobility and ultimately affect our quality of life.

At MSO Physio our mobility sessions are dedicated to optimising movement and function. This is delivered through yoga positions, stretching and dynamic movements.


Clinical yoga provides a comprehensive approach to improving mobility through gentle stretching, joint lubrication, strength development, and posture awareness. By practising a series of poses, individuals can enhance flexibility, strengthen supportive muscles, and promote proper alignment, resulting in an increased range of motion and reduced stiffness. Furthermore, yoga’s versatility enables individuals of all fitness levels to adapt poses to their specific mobility needs, allowing for gradual progression and modification.


Stretching lengthens muscles primarily through the process of elongating muscle fibres and increasing the flexibility of the connective tissues surrounding them. When you stretch a muscle, you apply a gentle force that causes the muscle fibres to elongate and realign, allowing them to reach a greater length than when at rest. This process triggers a physiological response within the muscle fibres. Over time, regular stretching leads to the adaptation of muscle tissues, resulting in increased muscle length and improved flexibility. Additionally, stretching promotes the remodelling of connective tissues, such as tendons and ligaments, making them more pliable and allowing for a greater range of motion in the joints. Overall, stretching facilitates the gradual and controlled lengthening of muscles, contributing to improved mobility and flexibility.


Dynamic movement helps with mobility by actively engaging muscles and joints through a range of motion. Dynamic movement involves continuous, controlled movements. This helps to increase blood flow to the joints, preparing them for activity and reducing the risk of injury. Additionally, dynamic movements help to improve neuromuscular coordination and proprioception, which is essential for balance and agility. By incorporating dynamic movements into your exercise programme, you can enhance your overall mobility, and move more freely and efficiently.


Mobility sessions at MSO Physio aim to combine each of these types of flexibility training to provide patients with the benefit of improved movement. Improved mobility can boost confidence, independence, and overall well-being. Whether it’s allowing you to participate in your favourite hobbies and social activities, or simply enjoying life with a better range of movement, the impact of mobility exercise can reach every aspect of life.


Currently, MSO Physio runs mobility classes at 9 am on Saturday mornings, and 1-2-1 sessions by appointment. Please email if you would like to join.
