Mobility Matters is a program created by Patrice Hickey, 70th Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing exercise physiologist, to prevent overuse injuries in ISR Airmen through the use of specific movements, assessments and tools that can be used inside the immediate work center. (U.S. Air Force Illustration/Staff Sgt. Alexandre Montes) Prevent injury through mobility, creating ISR culture of movement
As the Air Force continues to ‘Do more with less,’ we rely on our Airmen to be physically ready at all times. If one airmen is unable to perform their duties or even deploy, it short falls on another causing ever greater unneeded stressors on the squadron. Physical profiles are one of these pitfalls that are inherited from little to no physical activity, Mobility Matters is a program here to help prevent this from happening.
