FAQ

What is a corrective exercise specialist?

A corrective exercise specialist is trained in human movement assessment. They accurately analyze a person’s movement patterns, identify overactive and underactive muscle groups, and movement compensations. Once the assessment process is over, they create programs that optimize a person’s ability to move, perform exercises correctly, and reduce tissue tension caused by the load put on the body during training.

How long are corrective exercise sessions?

Your first session will be your assessment, and lasts about an hour. Follow-up sessions will be approximately 30 minutes, unless otherwise specified.

How often should I do corrective exercise training?

It depends on your needs, your body, and how often you do your corrective homework. You, your doctor and the corrective exercise specialist will determine your needs and goals to create a personalized plan for you. It takes time for the body to unlearn incorrect movement patterns and relearn new ones. Typically, good results can be seen within 6-12 visits.

Are packages available?

Yes! You can purchase packages of 6, 10 or 20 sessions. Please call the office for pricing.

I just got cleared to work out again. Is corrective exercise training safe for me?

Yes. Corrective exercise is often used as a bridge to safely progress a patient from the treatment room toward their physical movement goals. Corrective exercise training will reduce the risk of injury or reinjury, while strengthening and stabilizing weaker muscles.
