What Is Corrective Exercise Anyway?All of our muscles have a proper length in which they work best. Poor posture, repetitive movement, past injury…they all play a role in altering this optimal length.

If you spend a great deal of time sitting, you get what is called "Gluteal Amnesia". In other words, your butt forgets how to work properly. Not only that, your hamstrings have to pick up the slack and they become dysfunctional possibly leading to hamstring strains.

    I think it’s safe to say that most people have muscle imbalances. An imbalance is an overactive muscle on one side of a joint and a weak, underactive muscle on the opposite side. Because one side is weak, other muscles have to kick in to help and this creates what is known as muscle compensations.

According to the National Health Statistics Survey in 2012, over 28 percent of Americans live with lower back pain. Back troubles are the number one reason people under the age of 45 miss out on activities.

It wasn't long ago that a story came out that Doctors are finally admitting that medication isn't really the answer for low back pain afterall. It makes sense when you think about it. I mean why just treat the symptoms with drugs instead of looking for and then treating the root cause. Now there can be many causes of low back pain so always consult your Doctor first but low back pain can also be a result of our lifestyle too.

 Back in the day when I was growing up, if you wanted good posture you would walk around with a book on your head. I suppose that the longer you walked around without the book falling then the better your posture was getting. Ahhh, life was so simple back then. Science wise I don’t think they were too far off. Certainly practicing good posture can lead to good posture and better posture leads to better movement, less muscular stress and reduced injuries.
