Muscle imbalances lead to poor movement and poor movement leads to injuries. As a Corrective Exercise Specialist, I can help prevent those injuries.  NASM-CES, I have the skills and knowledge to help my clients at any fitness level and to address muscular imbalances and faulty movements.

 Q:  What is Corrective Exercise Training?

Corrective Exercise Training is made up of 4 Phases.  NASM-CES offers a systematic process of identifying a neuromuscular skeletal dysfunction.  We develop a plan of action and set up your Integrated Corrective Strategy (ICS). Starting with

  1. Identifying the Problem (Integrated Assessment)17905621_s
  2. Solve the Problem (Corrective Program Design)
  3. Implement the solution (Exercise Techniques)

To make this plan work we use these 4 primary phases.

  • Phase 1: Inhibit
  • Phase 2: Lengthen
  • Phase 3: Activate
  • Phase 4: Integrate Dynamic Movement

Q:  What is the benefits of Corrective Exercise Training

corrective Exercise Specialist is designed to prevent injury, decrease foot & ankle injury, lower back pain, knee pain and shoulder injury.  That will also increase flexibility, core function, balance, power, speed, agility, quickness, strength, and neuromuscular efficiency.

When designing an integrated sports performance program I will perform a comprehensive sports performance assessment.  After this is done we start by designing programs from slow to fast, known to unknown, stable to controlled-dynamic functional movement, low force to high force and correct execution to increased intensity.

Q:  Who needs Corrective Exercise Training?

Anyone who wants to improve performance and be competitive in their sport.  Performance Training helps you increase your stability, speed & agility, quickness and strength with will make you a better athlete.

What is Corrective Exercise Analysis?

The term corrective exercise defines a systematic process of identifying a new or musculoskeletal dysfunction and developing a plan of action and a process of implementation to correct the dysfunction. We can do this by following three simple steps. Step one is to identify the problem through an integrated assessment. Step two is to solve the problem through corrective program design and finally step three is to implement the solution and to create the perfect exercise technique to solve the problem.

There are several assessments we can do but we will start off with the basics.

Why do we need Corrective Exercise?

Research suggests that musculoskeletal pain is more common today then it was 40 years ago and because all of decreased activity in our daily lives.   There are 4 main areas where we look for this dysfunction, which include Foot and Ankle Injuries, Lower Back Pain, Knee Injuries and Shoulder Injuries.

  • Foot and Ankle Injuries

Plantar fasciitis accounts for more than 1 million Doctor visits per year, and ankle sprain’s are reported to be the most common sports injury today. With having ankle springs a person is more likely to develop chronic ankle instability and also knee and hip weakness.

  • Lower Back Pain

Nearly 80% of all adults experience lower back pain. Research shows that a huge percentage come from people who work in offices and to sit for more than 3 hours per day. Research has also shown that most injuries occur in the lower back (lumbar spine) at around 60% in the other 20% is in the core.

  • Knee Injuries

There is an estimated 80,000 to 100,000 ACL injuries occurring every year in the US alone. Amazingly, around 75% are through noncontact. Anytime you have ACL or any other joint related injury the chance of arthritis increases and will cause additional irritation and discomfort in that joint. This comes as no shock as increased obesity and lack of activities coupled with Technology have reduced the amount of physical activities in the US.

  • Shoulder Injuries

21% of the US population have reported I’m having shoulder pain with 40% of that lasting over one year. From that 21% shoulder impingement has been a majority of the medical diagnosis at 65%. Just like with any other joint irritation the chance of arthritis, cartlidge and tendinitis can occur through poor shoulder mechanics. With most of the population using iPhones and laptops this puts the body in an unstable position closing imbalances and increase musculoskeletal issues.
