I can design a plan for you to help re-align your body and get it set up for success. In a corrective exercise session, we start with a thorough assessment of your body’s current state and structure.

Step 1: The Full Body Assessment

A corrective exercise personal trainer will take time to go through each and every body part. The reason is - every part of the body is connected, and sometimes what is going on in, say, you shoulder affects the function of your hips and vice versa. A corrective exercise personal trainer combines what we find in the assessment with your physical symptoms. We then create a course of action where you can address your physical symptoms via an at home exercise plan.

It Sounds a lot Like Physical Therapy. What's the Difference?

corrective exercise trainerA corrective exercise personal trainer can be a godsend if you have been frustrated with chronic pain or limitations that affect workouts as well as daily life.

First things first - Corrective Exercise is NOT Physical Therapy and is not a replacement for physical therapy.  Corrective exercise is a style of training in which you utilize exercise to help improve how your body feels and it's performance.  I have taken many of the same courses that Physical Therapists take, so there is some overlap in my knowledge with theirs, and I do have access to Physical Therapists of whom I can ask questions when I need to. I just want to be clear that the two services are not the same and that as a Corrective Exercise specialist I have not been to Physical Therapy school and am not a physical therapist. 

Corrective Exercise sessions can be great for those who have been through a course of Physical Therapy but are still left with unresolved issues. Physical therapy can be tremendously useful in many circumstances but other times it isn't the right fit for the problem, especially when the root of your problem is in a different place then where your pain is or it has to do with things you are doing in your fitness workout. 

Corrective Exercise sessions are great for those who would prefer to work on their physical issues at home and find that they don't require manual release work from a provider. You can perform the workouts right at home with minimal equipment and you can meet with your trainer over video call or in person.

Now, I'll be honest, there are certainly many instances where seeing a Physical Therapist is warranted. If we determine together that is your best course of action, we will advise you to seek care with a Physical Therapist or Orthopedic Doctor. We have resources to send you to the right professional if that is the best choice.

We can also work alongside Physical Therapists to customize and coordinate your care. Since I have taken courses designed for both trainers and Physical Therapists, I know most of the lingo! Oftentimes once you are discharged from Physical Therapy it's a great time to continue work with a Corrective Exercise Specialist. We are not doctors or medical providers and we cannot diagnose injury or treat health conditions medically.

If the corrective exercise plan works as intended and you are feeling and performing better, your trainer can then help you ease your way into a more traditional fitness plan and you can cut your corrective exercise plan back into maintenance mode.

The great thing is that the good form and techniques you learn in corrective exercise will make you a superstar at “normal” workouts too. Your trainer will help you incorporate the Corrective Exercise principles into your fitness routine to where you can continue to work on your body all while engaging in a fitness routine that helps you get into great fitness shape. You will also decrease your chance of injury and learn how preserve your joints into old age. That way, you can continue to do the things you want and love to do for the rest of your life!
