Corrective Exercise

What is Corrective Exercise?

Corrective Exercise is a form of exercise that brings the body back into a perfect postural position. The body was designed to perform at its optimum level when it is a position of good posture. Unfortunately over time we tend to pick up all of these bad habits of slouching, leaning or even sitting at our desks at work in these really strange positions.

If you think about it, you are sitting in this one position for 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week, 48 weeks in a year. That's a lot of hours to be sitting in that strange position. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that over time, you will gradually start to assume that position in everyday things that you do.

This means that the body will tighten in certain areas and loosen in other areas. Muscles will become weaker and some may not even work at all.

Corrective Exercise is designed to undo all of these muscle imbalances and start to get the ones that haven't been working, working again.

Through exercise you will be loosening those ones that have become tight, and tightening muscle that have become loose. Basically you will be working towards bringing your body back into perfect posture so that it can function at its’ optimum level.
