Why Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) Are So Important

What are they Good for?

  1. Maintenance of ROM

    CARs will make sure you maintain your ROM.

    If you don’t move your joints/articulations more often in your whole ROM your Central Nervous System (CNS) will most likely adapt to that and will restrict some of your active ROM over time.
