Corrective Exercise is a training program used by certified specialists in order to assess and correct a clients musculoskeletal imbalances within the human movement system. Our body is connected all throughout, from head to toe, and what many people don’t realize is that the pain or discomfort you are having in a particular area is possibly being caused by an imbalance within the body at a completely different site. Imbalances in the body can arise from a previous injury, repetitive movements, surgeries, and anything else that may cause the body to compensate for an area of weakness.
Corrective Exercise helps to maintain balance within the body, relieve pain, increase performance, improve movement efficiency, and reduces the risk of injury.
After the Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) completes the assessment using specific postural and movement tools, the areas of the body that need to be corrected are determined.
