Corrective exercises and functional training can be a great option for:

  • Building muscle memory
  • Improving flexibility
  • Stabilizing joints
  • Decreasing risk of injury

Get up, get moving

Corrective exercises and functional training are similar therapies designed to build strength during rehabilitation. These wide-ranging exercises are used to improve overall body mechanics, movement, flexibility and correct overall joint and muscular disfunction dysfunction while increasing strength.

The key difference between corrective exercise and functional training is found in the goals behind the selected exercise program. Corrective exercises are designed to address the immediate limitations that are present. This can include decreased active range of motion, strength, and poor mechanics. Improvement in these exercises allows us to transition to functional training with ease.

Functional training, on the other hand, focuses on improving specific motions and activities that are required for daily function and sport/recreation. They can include, but are not limited to, squatting, lunging, running and jumping. Functional training is a way to introduce targeted exercise to enhance movements and increase activity tolerance. 

The great thing about corrective exercises and functional training is that they are wholly based on the principles of proper body mechanics. So, while they may be designed and planned around those recovering from an injury or looking to regain athletic ability, the exercises are truly beneficial to anyone; those with or without an injury, young or old.
