Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements to restore desirable changes in posture or injured joints/tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises cue the brain’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in improving biomechanics.
This comprehensive and consistent approach works to retrain muscles, restore joint function and prevent recurring injuries as well as doctor visits. When corrective exercises become necessary, they help maintain proper posture, improve lifting mechanics while helping to determine the “Do’s and Don’ts” related to certain jobs or daily activities. The effectiveness of the treatment protocol depends on the patient’s commitment to their therapeutic exercises and doctor’s recommendations.
