  5 Joint Mobility Exercises to Improve Flexibility and Function Medically reviewed by Gregory Minnis, DPT, specialty in physical therapy, on March 5, — Written by Natasha Freutel Ankle mobility. The Posture Alignment Therapy technique is based in the basic principal that the human body is comprised of eight major load-bearing joints: shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles. These joints function best when horizontally and vertically aligned as shown in the image below: When these joints are out of alignment, the body is susceptible to joint Author: Maryann Berry.

BodyFix Method™ is not your standard physical therapy. Traditional PT focuses on the site of the pain. We find the underlying misalignments contributing to the pain and eliminate it from its source. We treat the whole body, not just the site of the pain. Poor alignment and faulty postural habits cause most chronic pain. For example, overhead shoulder presses using dumbbells is a therapeutic exercise. Stronger shoulders will improve function, however the actual exercise does not mimic an everyday task. Several types of exercise are included in this category. Active exercise is movement of a body part against gravity, or with additional weight for resistance.
