What Is Corrective Exercise?

Corrective Exercise is a method that leverages an understanding of anatomy, kinesiology, biomechanics and structural alignment of the human body to correct compensations and muscle imbalances, therefore it improves the overall quality of movement during workouts, sports and in everyday life.

Corrective Exercise is used to help assess and determine the root cause of imbalances and faulty movement patterns that lead to issues with posture, injury, and body coordination. Once the issues are identified, we can then develop personalised exercise routines that address the problem through exercise/movement-based rehabilitation.

By addressing your abnormal function, especially iyour feet, ankles, knees, hips and shoulders, this helps your body to handle the load and tension that come from everyday movement and help reduce the risk of future injury.

Thanks to these strategies, you will be able to move better and exercise correctly, it will also give you the ability to take part in a plethora of different activities and sports that may not have been able to do otherwise.

Why Is Corrective Exercise Important?

Movement is a reality of everyday life whether you’re a desk-based worker or an active individual. Corrective Exercise is imperative in identifying and addressing imbalances that cause posture, stability, flexibility and mobility issues. This intervention can improve your voluntary neuromuscular control, which helps reduce the risk of injuries.
