-- While a regular exercise routine can boost heart health, lung capacity and life span, exercise can also lead to injuries and imbalances. In that case, it's important to understand the best options when it comes to therapeutic exercises, corrective exercises and post-rehab exercises, all discussed in detail by corrective exercise expert Anthony Carey on John Spencer Ellis' recent video blog.
The video blog breaks down complex science into easy-to-understand concepts and terminology for personal trainers, coaches, fitness pros and athletes looking for more information on corrective exercise. In particular, Carey explains that:
Therapeutic exercises are based on physical therapy and are part of a treatment protocol, an exercise program structured around the rehabilitation of a particular injury.
Corrective exercises focus on identifying incorrect patterns of movement, identifying what muscles are weak or strong, lengthened or shortened, and what can be done to correct imbalances in the body.
Post-rehab exercises are exercises that can be therapeutic in nature, but chiefly focus on long-term treatment for a client's holistic health. Post-rehab exercises can be step one and lead into corrective exercises.
"Regardless of what you do to get fit, it's important to understand how you can improve the quality of your movement, so you can avoid compounding existing problems and get the most of your ongoing workouts," said Ellis, founder of John Spencer Ellis Enterprises, a fitness and personal development solutions company. "Whether you have an injury or are a personal trainer working with clients with injuries, understanding corrective exercises can make a big difference in your long-term health and productivity."
The online interview also discusses misconceptions and misinformation about this aspect of the fitness industry as well as different definitions of functional and sports-specific exercises. In addition, it addresses the importance of understanding these exercises, as well as more passive healing modalities, for fitness professionals, whether they are looking to heal from an injury, improve performance or train for an event.
