How Rehabilitative and Corrective Exercise Works

Rehabilitative/Corrective Exercise is a structured and progressive form of exercise therapy that addresses musculoskeletal imbalances, movement dysfunctions, and injury rehabilitation. Here’s how it works:

Assessment and Evaluation:
Every Rehabilitative/Corrective Exercise program begins with a comprehensive assessment conducted by our skilled exercise specialists. During this assessment, we evaluate your movement patterns, identify areas of weakness or dysfunction, and gather information about your medical history, goals, and limitations.

Individualized Program Design:
Based on the findings from the assessment, our experts design a customized exercise program tailored to your specific needs and objectives. This program may include a combination of strength training, flexibility exercises, balance drills, neuromuscular re-education, and other therapeutic techniques.

Focus on Functional Movement:
Unlike traditional fitness programs that may prioritize aesthetics or performance, Rehabilitative/Corrective Exercise places a strong emphasis on functional movement patterns that are essential for everyday activities and sports performance. By targeting these fundamental movement patterns, we help you regain optimal function and performance in your daily life or athletic endeavors.

Progressive Loading:
As you progress through your Rehabilitative/Corrective Exercise program, our specialists gradually increase the intensity, complexity, and resistance of the exercises to continually challenge your muscles and promote adaptation. This progressive approach ensures that you make steady gains in strength, mobility, and stability while minimizing the risk of overuse injuries or setbacks.

Education and Empowerment:
In addition to guiding you through the exercises, our experts provide education and coaching to help you understand the principles behind the program and learn how to perform the exercises with proper form and technique. We empower you with the knowledge and skills necessary to take control of your health and continue making progress independently.

Monitoring and Adjustment:
Throughout your Rehabilitative/Corrective Exercise journey, our specialists closely monitor your progress, reassess your movement patterns, and make adjustments to the program as needed to ensure that you stay on track toward achieving your goals. We believe in a collaborative approach, and your feedback and input are always welcomed and valued.

Integration with Other Therapies:
Rehabilitative/Corrective Exercise can complement and enhance other forms of therapy, such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, or massage therapy. Our clinic offers a multidisciplinary approach to care, and we work closely with other healthcare providers to ensure seamless coordination and optimal outcomes for our clients.
