Corrective Exercise Specialist
A Corrective Exercise Specialist is an expert in human movement assessment. They accurately analyse a client's movement patterns, identify overactive and underactive muscle groups and compensations. Once the assessment process is over, they create programs that optimise clients' ability to move, perform exercises correctly, and reduce tissue tension caused by the load put on the body via training. Corrective Exercise is a terrific complement, if not a necessity, to anyone that works in the fitness or health field.
Movement is a reality of everyday life regardless of if you work in an office building or are a professional athlete. Corrective Exercise is imperative in identifying and addressing imbalances that cause posture, stability, and mobility issues. Having a rich understanding of Corrective Exercise allows fitness professionals to identify problems and potential limitations in a client's movements.
One of the most important elements of Corrective Exercise is a proper assessment. As professionals we can effectively assess our clients and develop personalised solutions to improve the way our clients move, feel, and recover from a workout. Studies show proper Corrective Exercise intervention can improve neuromuscular control, which can reduce risk of future injuries.
