Corrective exercise is a specific type of training that focuses on addressing and correcting muscle imbalances, asymmetries, and poor movement patterns in the body, with the goal of improving movement quality, preventing injuries, and enhancing athletic performance. Traditional physical therapy, on the other hand, is a broader term that encompasses a range of therapeutic modalities, such as manual therapy, exercises, and modalities, used to help patients recover from injuries, surgeries, or illnesses, and to alleviate pain and improve function. Both corrective exercise and traditional physical therapy may include exercises, but the specific exercises used and the focus of the therapy will differ. Corrective exercise focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of a problem, rather than just treating the symptoms, while traditional physical therapy may use exercises as a tool for improving strength, range of motion, and function. Corrective exercise is typically used as a preventive measure and to enhance the performance of the individual, while traditional physical therapy is more focused on the rehabilitation and recovery from an injury or condition. It’s important to note that corrective exercise is often used in conjunction with traditional physical therapy as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. A physical therapist can determine if corrective exercise is appropriate for you, and if so, will include it in your treatment plan.
