Corrective Exercise helps re-educate your body to move efficiently. Programs are designed to increase the flexibility of muscles that have become too tight and strengthen the muscles that have become weak. An intelligent and progressive program combined with good coaching and exercise techniques can not only get you moving pain-free and efficiently, but it can get you amazingly strong and fit.
A typical corrective program will start by mobilizing the areas your body is “stuck” or tight. Next, exercises will be implemented to isolate the muscles that have become lazy or weak. This is the foundation of a Corrective Exercise program. Once flexibility has been gained and the weaker muscles are working, you can begin Corrective Exercise Training by performing exercises to integrate the new, efficient movement pattern.
Increasing the range of motion in your joints and strengthening weaker muscles to become balanced in the body allows you to be able to lift heavier, work a greater percentage of your muscles, decrease your chances of injury, have better posture, and get stronger. There shouldn’t be a disconnect between corrective exercise and performance enhancement. A good training program should accomplish both.
In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced corrective exercise training on staff will maximize your chiropractic care while helping your body achieve balance and health.
