What corrective exercises should I do?

Each person has a different body type with a varying range of: flexibility, strength, and athletic capabilities. When we create a care plan, corrective exercises may be recommended based on a careful analysis of each person’s physical state in order to determine what areas of the body they are lacking strength or need improvement and stability.

What are corrective exercises?

Unlike traditional gym exercises which focus on building strength and overall mass of targeted muscles, corrective exercises combine an understanding of anatomy, kinesiology and biomechanics to help improve a person’s movement patterns and their overall quality of life.

We use corrective exercises to address the root physical imbalances and faulty movements in a person’s body that can be causing them to have:

  • poor posture
  • lack of coordination
  • physical stress and pain in the joints body from everyday tasks
  • reduced sports performance
  • reduced range of motion of movement
  • wrist/ankle pain
  • shoulder pain or weakness
  • knee pain
  • hip pain
  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • muscle tightness

Why should I do these exercises?

Studies have shown that active participation in healthcare has a positive correlation with quicker recovery and preventing pain and injuries from reoccurring. We found that with the addition of corrective exercises in a person’s healthcare plan, many people were able to move better and perform activities or sports that they were not able to do before. The biggest benefit is we educate you on how to PREVENT injuries from happening thus reducing the length of treatment!

Other benefits to performing corrective exercises include:

  • strengthening and adding stability to the body
  • improving everyday movements such as lifting, bending, typing
  • reduction and prevention of pain
  • increase flexibility
  • increase joint stability
  • improve sports performance
  • reduce risk of injury
  • increase the body’s ability to recover
  • improve coordination
