No person's body is ever perfect! There are subtle differences in every individual that can hinder us from optimal performance. Fortunately, there many things you can do to improve your physical health, including corrective exercises.
What Are Corrective Exercises?
Corrective exercises are gentle stretches, and other body movements that can help improve your flexibility, range of motion, and strengthen muscles. They can help alleviate pain, soreness, and tension due to a variety of physical conditions, such as stress and overuse of muscles. Corrective exercises are especially important to improve function and mobility for people with physical deformities such as misalignment of the spine, herniated discs, bulging discs, scoliosis, and other ailments.
How Can Corrective Exercises Improve My Health?
Our chiropractor will be able to conduct a physical exam and get a better understanding of the unique composition of your body. Doing so will allow us to understand which types of exercises will best fit your lifestyle, and what types of corrective exercises you can do at home.
Corrective exercises done at home can also help improve your overall quality of life and speed up your recovery process. Some corrective exercises our chiropractor might recommend include:
- Stretch and Holds: extending the muscles and holding the position so you can improve your range of motion
- Strengthening: movements with the use of a lightweight resistance band can improve targeted muscle strength
