Why you should do the CARs routine every single day.
CARs stands for controlled articular rotations which basically means we are taking a single joint through a slow and controlled circle of our available range of motion. The routine consists of taking every single joint one at a time through its specific CARs every single day. Kamloops Kinesiologist Alexa Cochran can show you how it’s done.
The CARs routine should be done every day for maximal benefits. Since we are taking every joint through its full range of motion, we are preserving that range into our older age. If we don’t use it we will lose it, so staying on top of your CARs will maintain joint health and can even improve mobility and decrease pain over time. With that we can fend off the risk of injury in the future allowing you to enjoy all of life’s activities and the movements needed for it.
CARs routine is part of the functional range conditioning system that is designed to either transition you from rehabilitation into training status or up your performance for any activity. Doing the routine every day is the first step to gaining control over your joints and movements.
