What Is Corrective Exercise?
Corrective Exercise is a technique that leverages an understanding of anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics to address and fix movement compensations and imbalances to improve the overall quality of movement during workouts 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, balance, and total body coordination.
Once the issue or issues are identified, a Corrective Exercise Specialist can then develop an exercise routine that addresses the problem through foam rolling, stretching, and total body exercises.
By addressing a client’s functional movement and the issues impeding it, especially at their feet, knees, and hips, it helps reduce the stress put on their body. By properly aligning the body, corrective exercises help it to handle the load that everyday movement puts on it and helps reduce the risk of future injury.
Thanks to these strategies, clients will be able to move better, which will open up a variety of new exercises they will be able to do. It will also give them the ability to take part in a plethora of different activities and sports that they enjoy and may not have been able to do otherwise.

What Does a Corrective Exercise Specialist Do?
A Corrective Exercise Specialist is an expert in human movement assessment. They accurately analyze a client's movement patterns, identify overactive and underactive muscle groups and compensations.
