Corrective Exercise

What Is Corrective Exercise?

Corrective Exercise is a technique that leverages an understanding of anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics to address movement compensations and imbalances to improve the overall quality of movement during your workouts and in your 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, balance, and total body coordination. Once the issue or issues are identified, a Body Balance Corrective Exercise Specialist can then develop an exercise routine that addresses the problem through self-myofascial release, stretching, and strengthening exercises. By addressing your functional movement and the issues impeding it, especially feet, ankles, knees, hips, spine, shoulders, neck and head, it helps reduce the stress put on your body. By properly aligning your body, corrective exercises help it to handle the load that everyday movement puts on it and helps reduce the risk of future injury.

Why Is Corrective Exercise Important?

Movement is a reality of everyday life regardless of if you work in an office building or are a professional athlete. Corrective Exercise is imperative in identifying and addressing imbalances that cause posture, stability, and mobility issues. Having a rich understanding of Corrective Exercise allows Body Balance fitness professionals to identify problems and potential limitations in your daily movements. One of the most important elements of Corrective Exercise is a proper assessment. Using the Biomechanics Method for Corrective Exercise, a Body Balance Corrective Exercise Specialist can effectively assess and develop personalized solutions to improve the way you move, feel, and recover from a workout. Studies show proper Corrective Exercise intervention can improve neuromuscular control, which can reduce risk of future injuries.

Corrective Exercise

When you first begin working with your Certified Body Balance Corrective Exercise Specialist trained into Biomechanics Method, you will undergo a comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment. Results from this assessment will guide your Body Balance Specialist to understand what muscles and other soft tissue structures are contributing to your condition. This information will then be used to select and design a sequential and progressive Corrective Exercise Program to successfully eliminate your aches and pains so you can move without limitations and enjoy life to the fullest.

The Assessment Process

When you first begin working with a Body Balance Fitness Professional trained in the Biomechanics Method, you will undergo a full-body musculoskeletal assessment. This process begins with an in person verbal consultation to gain insight into your health history and those factors that may be affecting your musculoskeletal health. A comprehensive visual and hands-on assessment will then be conducted of your feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvis , spine, and head. This non-invasive procedure will identify any problematic imbalances that might be contributing to your pain and disfunction. During the assessment process, your Body Balance Specialist will teach you how the imbalances they find in one area of your body may be causing pain and/or dysfunction in others. At the conclusion of the assessment process, your Body Balance Corrective Exercise Specialist will summarize what they have discovered and discuss possible corrective exercise solutions. To begin your Corrective Exercise process, we invite you to contact us and set a time to meet with our Certified Body Balance Corrective Exercise Specialist, for a complimentary consultation and a tour of our facilities.
