re: “So itʻs purely a movement issue? No straightening or mobility exercises?”

moving exercises usually assume that your static positioning is good.  so you should always work on position in a non-moving style before introducing movement, or at least a lot of challenging dynamic movement.

in jumping, let’s say the two leg jump, you should look to improve the deep squat position (bracing, hip/leg mobility) and your standing position (this is your position when you launch into the air: posture, bracing, most likely arms up so maybe even shoulder mobility as well), as the two max range positions of the movement.  improving the end positions will improve all positions in between.

so yes it could be a mobility issue as you try to get into optimal end range positions for jumping.
