Your body can slip out of balance without you even realizing it. Sitting at a computer rounds the natural shape of your spine and puts undue pressure on your lower back. Even light foot pain can cause your body to overcompensate, throwing your hips out of alignment and leading to the discomfort that lasts long after your foot has healed.
As the imbalances pile up, instead of correcting them, you grow accustomed to them. Pretty soon, this out-of-alignment way of living starts racking up the aches and twinges.
Corrective exercises do just what the name suggests: they correct your uneven foundation and get you back into proper form. With a corrective exercise plan, those aches and cracks you feel when you get out of bed in the morning will begin to disappear, leaving you with a lighter step and a more rested feeling.
When you suffer an injury, you reflexively compensate by putting more of the payload on the other side of your body, allowing the injury time to rest and recover. This overwork on the compensating side leads to extra pressure and tension that become additional pains.
Corrective exercises during the rehab process are a very important part of putting your body back in balance and making sure every part does its fair share of the work, which prevents future injury and nagging aches.
Corrective exercises are designed to help you move better, feel better, and live your best life. During your consultation with Dr. Bates, you’ll discuss your issues and health goals, and together you’ll develop a plan to help you achieve those goals and get your body back on track.
The positive results you can expect from corrective exercise are numerous, including:
Corrective exercise can also help you avoid the need for surgery or medication, saving you time, money, and added grief.
