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

  • Building muscle memory
  • Improving flexibility
  • Strengthening 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, enhance movement and flexibility, and correct overall joint and muscle disfunction.

The key difference between corrective exercises and functional training is the goal behind the selected exercise program. Corrective exercises are designed to address joint limitations, muscle weakness, mobility issues after an injury, and improper mechanics. These exercises are designed around a patient's unique recovery needs, and may include a variety of stretching, strength-training, and core exercises to regain a patient's normal body mechanics.

Functional training incorporates many of the same corrective exercises, however the end goal of the exercise program is where it stands apart. For patients who are focused on returning to a specific sport or activity after recovery, functional training is a way to introduce targeted exercises that are designed and selected with that activity in mind. This could be a basketball player looking to regain free-throw form after an injury, or even a senior looking to be able to get up off the ground after a fall or load things into the car.

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.
