Corrective exercise is an exercise technique which is very different from other regular exercise programs. It starts with a functional assessment of the physical arrangement of the body. This functional assessment helps in determining any imbalances or deficits that could be affecting an individual’s performance and his/her daily activities. After this functional assessment, a very specific corrective exercise and flexibility program is developed to help correct the body’s structure and bring it back to its normal state.
Corrective exercises are designed to make positive changes in the way an individual moves and they concentrate on the underlying cause of the pain, as the best way to eliminate pain is by eliminating the cause.
