Corrective Exercise

Your body has millions of sensory nerves that communicate your every function and action.

Corrective Exercises harness the power of the nervous system to increase sensory and motor control, so you move more effectively without pain and dysfunction.

(And it is simple and easy to do…)

Why Is Corrective Exercise So Popular?

Here are just a few reasons…

It's Incredibly Safe

Exercise and movement is one of the safest and most effective therapies. It is used in many different therapeutic methods and promotes improvements in all aspects of health, including: cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, bone health, and stress management, to name a few.

It's POWERFUL

Corrective exercise is perhaps one of the most effective therapies and rehabilitative techniques, period. It has stood the test of time and continues to demonstrate effectiveness today. We know it to be highly effective for a wide range of joint and soft-tissue conditions (e.g. tendinopathies, ligament strains, etc.).

There's Proven Results

When performed  consistently, Corrective exercise has a transformational impact on the body’s ability to stabilize the joints and control all movements. It taps into the most powerful and wonderfully complicated circuitry – the human nervous system (Brain and CNS. 

HOW CORRECTIVE EXERCISE WORKS

Stimulates Your Neuro-Muscular System

When you have pain and inflammation from an acute or chronic musculo-skeletal injury, there is a reduction in sensory proprioceptive feedback. This means your nervous system restricts your range of motion to ensure stability. By stimulating the sensory nerve fibers in the muscles and joints, the brain has better information and moves more effectively. Improved neuro-muscular control means improved range of motion and less pain and inflammation.

Improves Microcirculation

When we move and contract the muscles of the body there is improved blood flow through the muscles and joints. This is a major reason conventional “bed rest” protocols can be contradictory to fast, efficient recovery. Limiting movement has its place in some conditions, but in many others adding mobility sooner will improve healing rates and recovery outcomes.

Promotes Tissue Healing

When your body is moving better, it removes much of the “faulty” mechanical stress of the joints. When your neuro-muscular patterns are corrected, it takes the stress off painful and inflamed tissues and promotes better healing.

Helps Your Body Create Optimal Function

When you apply corrective exercise as a daily or weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to shift into positive movement patterns. The changes induced by corrective exercise are literally retraining new neural pathways your body won’t soon forget.
