Who should do Corrective Exercise?
Due to the physical demands of our jobs, sports and daily activities in general, we can all benefit from some corrective work to create balance in the body.
However, Corrective Exercise is most important for getting back to function following pain or injury and in preventing further problems.
Using carefully designed individual-specific exercise programs, the aim is to identify, correct and enhance – see below for more details…
What does it involve?
This is the key to your success in getting out of pain and enhancing your function:
- Postural Analysis
- Muscle Strength Testing
- Flexibility Assessment
- Functional Movement Screen
- Core Function Testing
- Body Composition Measurement
One-to-One Exercise Program

Want to know more about Corrective Exercise?
Our aim is to help you be pain free and functional. Our approach is to not only look at the site and source of pain, but to treat the body as a whole, create balance and bringing the body out of pain and reducing the risk of injury.
A pain at the knee could actually be caused by a tightness/issue at the hip and all the knee exercises in the world will never get to the cause of the pain. We’ve always known that the body is integrated in this way… the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone etc.
The pain that you experience could actually just be a series of muscular imbalances that result in movement dysfunction. Often this can lead to chronic pain.
So what’s the answer? Get to the root cause. Corrective Exercise specialists can assess and identify these muscular imbalances and dysfunctional movements and design a program to iron them out. Did you ever think that a restriction at your ankle following a sprain 10 years ago could cause the pain in your shoulder today? Or that the tight hamstrings from your desk-job is causing your lower back pain?

Low Back Pain and Sciatica
Client with a desk-based occupation presented with constant ache (5/10) in lower back and intermittent sciatic pain (10/10) down their leg when walking. Assessments highlighted postural issues (anterior pelvic tilt), weak core muscles and extremely tight hamstrings. They were given a home program of corrective stretches, core conditioning and scientific back training. After 1 week the ache was down to 2/10 and sciatic pain was less frequent and intense (6/10). Following Phase 1 (4weeks), there was only occasional lower back ache at 1/10 and no sciatic pain.
