Corrective Exercises

Corrective Exercises

These exercises will be given to you as determined by Dr. Derron. The exercises are aimed to work hand-in-hand with spinal corrections to help the body to move more efficiently.

These exercises are often incredibly helpful for most every patient. They are great for patients who often feel as though they "can't hold" their adjustment.

Strengthening weakened or inhibited muscles allows joints and muscles to experience less pain and higher function. These exercises are not "cookie-cutter" and each patient's case will be treated uniquely with their own set of exercises best suited for them!

Dr. Derron is also trained in soft tissue release techniques as well as trigger point therapy. Muscle tightness and pain are common conditions we see in our office that we can treat with these techniques!
Muscle stretching and proper warmups are important throughout the day.

Dr Derron may perform some stretching techniques that involve patient interaction. Other stretches can be performed by the patient themself and can be given as take-home stretches.

The stretching aims to decrease trigger point and tight muscle tissue to help patients move more effectively and with less pain!

Corrective exercise is a physical activity that aims to improve body mechanics, joint function, movement patterns, and imbalance.

It uses knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics to identify the root cause of movement dysfunction and create a plan to correct it. The main goal of corrective exercise is to optimize the quality of movement, which can enhance performance, results, resistance to injury, and efficiency of movements and recovery.

Corrective exercise involves three steps:

  • Deactivation/Lengthening: Overactive muscles

  • Isolated strengthening: Under-active muscles

  • Integration: Muscle groups back into compound movements using the joint complex

Corrective exercise can help people move and feel better while working out or living their everyday life. It can also help people reduce pain, move more efficiently, reduce injury risk, and improve strength, endurance, flexibility, and posture.

One technique used in corrective exercise is myofascial release, which involves placing pressure on fascia and muscle tissue to release adhesions (or knots) and promote blood flow to the area.

Corrective exercises can be implemented during the initial stages of a workout or during a warm-up. Most of these movements do not require a significant load, nor will they tax the athlete in any way that will harm their performance.
