Corrective Exercise and Injury Rehab
Improve posture, alignment, strength and flexibility
What is it?
Corrective exercise provides a means of improving posture, alignment, strength, flexibility and as a result freeing the body from injury and pain.
At the Westoe Practice, our Biomechanics and Physiotherapists can offer an in depth one to one consultation and body analysis to determine which areas of the body require assistance.
We will carry out a postural analysis taking notes on your goals. A personal plan will then be given to realign and improve your posture.
You will work on strengthening your core muscles which are imperative before going further with the exercise programme. The exercise sessions at the Westoe Practice will provide you with a thorough understanding of the exercises most suited to you, regaining postural alignment and strengthening the core.

How does corrective exercise work?
Some people exercise regularly at the gym, some go to classes once a week and some don’t exercise at all. Often we will be struck down with an injury, only to find when this heals, another occurs. This can be an ongoing process until one day we decide not to exercise at all since we feel worse. This is a downward spiral since we then become fatigued, stiffening up in the joints and feeling old.
Exercise coaching looks at you as an individual and helps to determine which exercises are required to create balance in the body bringing back functional and pain free movement and preventing injury and pain. The benefits of this could not be over emphasized. A series of specific exercises will be given. This may involve free weights, swiss balls and therabands. The devised programme will be designed for you to follow at home or if you prefer in the gym on a regular basis. A programme which does not entail much equipment.
How can it help you?
Corrective exercise can help you to live pain free with improved feelings of health and wellbeing. You will have the tools and the knowledge to perform the correct exercise, easily and at home if you wish. The resultant effect being health throughout the entire body.
A typical session?
