Are other joints more susceptible to injury due to mobility of the joint? What diseases or injuries are most common in these joints?
Answere : Improper joint mobility can leads to arthritis, inflammation and joint pain. Joint mobility is the ability of joints to move through full and functional range of motion.

The joints which are most commonly effected by reduced joint mobility are :
I. Ankle : Linked with overuse injuries of foot and ankle

III. Hip : Contribute to jnjury such as : adductor tear, adductor tendinopathy and osteitis pubis as well as lower back and knee issues.
