Corrective exercise is the process of fixing the imbalances that we have created from our every daypostures, habits, and activities.
Corrective exercise can help you overcome:
For example, a good personal trainer will not just make a "functional training" workout for you without first assessing you during simple movements such as a squat, plank, and a pulling movement. Our bodies will perform these exercises differently based on our mal-alignments, muscle imbalances, and improper inter-muscular coordination. The best personal trainer will be able to tell why your body is shifting and leaning during these assessments.
Our field too often has instructors that don't seem to offer appropriate exercises based on the individual problems someone will have. Here at JRT Fit, we are different.
When we notice your hip flexors are too tight, we will know that loading you under a squat bar is asking for a back injury due to your forward lean. Squats are a great exercise, but can be dangerous if taught without someone having good form. Having overactive adductors (inner thighs) or vastus medialis oblique muscles (inside quadriceps), and underactive gluteus minimus muscles (small outer glute) will cause a near impossible perfect squat while transferring load incorrectly over your knee joint... leading to future injury.
Instead we would stretch the overactive muscles while teaching you to engage the underactive muscles via isolated contractions, while helping you increase your neuromuscular (mind to muscle) awareness.
In short, corrective exercise will prevent future injuries, while helping you overcome any possible current aches and pains.
