Postural and Corrective exercise is a broad term used to describe the types of exercises used in order to improve a person’s limited movement capabilities, poor posture and muscle weaknesses.
Limited movements and weakness can develop for many different sources:
The time spent in the treatment room is an extremely small amount of time compared to what you do with your body the rest of the week (and beyond). We need to use postural and corrective exercise therapy to consistently feed your body the new inputs we want to take hold.
But more importantly, I want to make my patients as self-reliant as possible, empowering them with tools to make care of themselves.
These are done throughout the day (possibly at specific times, depending on what we are trying to improve) with minimal equipment and effort.
