As defined by NASM, “Corrective Exercise is a technique that leverages an understanding of anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics to address and fix movement compensations and imbalances to improve the overall quality of movement during workouts and in everyday life.”
A Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) is trained to analyze movement patterns for muscle imbalances from overactive or underactive muscles and from compensations. Based on assessment, the CES can provide programming to optimize functional movement patterns and restore balance.
Our Chiropractors and several of our Massage Therapists are certified as Corrective Exercise Specialists, allowing us to provide more complete care. This added training, combined with studies in kinesiology and orthopedic assessment, allows us to consider a more complete picture when assessing your body and designing a care plan to address your goals and needs. With one team of practitioners, you can address soft-tissue dysfunction, joint function, muscular imbalance, and biomechanics.
Whether you are looking to prevent low back pain while running, enhance muscle engagement when lifting, increase speed while swimming, or improve your breathing and stamina in soccer, we are here to serve as your body care “pit crew” to support your athletic & movement goals.
Did you just start running? Maybe you’ve recently built a small home gym. This is a very important time to get movement patterns assessed to ensure you have the foundations for healthy movement and preventing disruptive injuries. Let us support your new goals & healthy habits!
You are already in the gym or practicing your sport 3-5 times a week. Things have been going well, so why get checked? Even short disruptions to training, prolonged sitting during travel, or periods of high stress can disrupt movement patterns in ways that typically go unnoticed and increase the likelihood of injury over time.
You put so much into performing your best when training and even at home. But if you’ve never taken the opportunity to improve your movement on a biomechanical level, you may be leaving some performance opportunities untouched. We help our professional & elite athletes improve stamina & accuracy, and recover better.
