Corrective Exercise is about exercising with purpose.
It’s about choosing the right exercises for your posture, acitivity level and personal health history; knowing when and how to progress them and making sure they are performed with proper technique and posture. In everyday life, we are constantly doing activities that create imbalances in our bodies. From sleeping on one side, sitting for long periods of time, or participating in sports like tennis and golf, our bodies slowly develop strengths and weaknesses that eventually lead to asymmetry in our posture and movement. These posture and movement imbalances can lead to unnecessary wear and tear on our muscles and joints and make us more susceptible to chronic pain and injuries.
The goal of Corrective Exercise is to identify both posture and movement imbalances and joint limitations and develop a program to correct them. The focus is on movements designed to create balance, stability, and/or mobility in areas that are not functioning properly.
Rationale For Corrective Exercise
As technology and automation have increased the level of physical activity for many of us has decreased. Add to that, we are constantly involved in activities and postures that create imbalance in the body. Unfortunately, many personal training programs fail to include a proper assessment and do not address postural imbalances by including the right combination of strengthening and stretching exercises.
