What is Corrective Exercise?

Corrective exercise is a term used in the field of physical therapy and fitness to describe a specialized approach to movement training aimed at improving musculoskeletal function, posture, and movement patterns. It focuses on identifying and addressing imbalances, weaknesses, and dysfunctions in the body that contribute to pain, injury, or limitations in movement.
