Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
I trained with the National Academy or Sports Medicine to get my Corrective exercise qualification. Corrective Exercise refers to movements designed to target a problem seen in a person’s physical movement. In our lives, either through our day-to-day work, unbalanced exercise selection in the weight room, lopsided sports activity like golf, tennis or softball, or sitting around too much at work, muscle groups work at diminished capacity, letting others take over the tasks.
Often, the wrong muscles doing the majority of the work or one side of the body working better than the other will cause a cascade of problems such as back and neck pain. Sometimes the problems have gone on long enough they can’t be fixed without surgery, or can’t be fixed at all, but more often than not, attention on corrective exercise can reverse potential pain, and with surprisingly little effort.
