The human body is designed to have a specific posture that allows it to work at its maximum level. However, people pick up bad habits such as slouching, dragging their feet, compensating for a sore leg with the other and more. These habits can affect the body by causing joint pain, misalignment, muscle stiffness and reduce the body’s ability to function.
Corrective exercise, like the programs offered at ICWA, address those issues and train you and your body back into healthy, natural movement.
Corrective Exercise: What It Is
Bad habits, like slouching, basically train your muscles, tendons and ligaments into acting in a specific way. Repetitive motion causes strain on joints; when you
compensate, you’re only relieving the strain on one joint by putting more pressure on another.
Corrective exercise is a form of exercise program that helps train your body back into the healthy posture it needs. By loosening stiff muscles, strengthening underused muscle groups and teaching the right way to sit, walk and move, corrective exercise enhances the natural biomechanics. This reduces the negative stress being put on certain parts of the body and improves functional performance, reduces pain, improves strength and flexibility and helps give an overall sense of well-being.
