So who knows what the difference is between mobility and stretching? Before you read any further, try to think about it and see what you come up with. Kelly Starrett, a Doctor of Physical Therapy and owner of CrossFit San Francisco, describes it like this:

“Stretching only focuses on lengthening short and tight muscles. Mobilization, on the other hand, is a movement-based integrated full-body approach that addresses all the elements that limit movement and performance including short and tight muscles, soft tissue restriction, joint capsule restriction, motor control problems, joint range of motion dysfunction, and neural dynamic issues. In short, mobilization is a tool to globally address movement and performance problems.”
