If you have poor posture or muscular imbalnaces, strengthening exercises will actually exacerbate the problem by reinforming poor movement patterns and placing stress on already overworked muscles. This can lead to increased pain and the development of new imbalances.
Our system of therapeutic corrective exercise, on the other hand, focus on correcting the imbalances that are causing the pain. By targeting specific muscles and improving postural awareness, corrective exercises can help to improve alginment and reduce stress on the body.
In addition, corrective exercises can also help to improve range of motion, flexibility, and organically strengthens which can further reduce pain and improve function. Strengthening exercises can then be incorporated to improve muscle strength and function, but only after the underlying imbalances have been corrected.
It is important to work with an expererience licensed healthcare professional to develop a customized exercise program that is appropriate for your specific needs. This will ensure that the exercises are safe and effective and they are targeting the underlying imbalances that are contributing to your pain.
In summary, corrective exercises are crucial for addressing pain caused by poor posture, injury or overuse. Strengthening exercises alone may not be effective in relieving pain because they do not address the underlying cause of imbalances. By correcting the imbalnces through targeted corrective exercises, you can improve alignment, reduce stress on the body, and ultimatley reduce pain and improve functional mobility.
