MEANING AND OBJECTIVES OF CORRECTIVE EXERCISES
The classical expression “corrective exercises” refer to exercises aimed at preventing and treating paramorphism and dismorphism that affect young people at development age such as dorsal hyperciphosis, lumbar hyperlordosis and scoliosis.
The specialist (orthopaedic or phisiatrist), after a careful examination, prescribes only the corrective exercises as part of a therapy which includes also other interventions (orthosis, drugs, etc...).
Correttive exercises are mainly the following ones·:
- Stretching of myofascial retractions;
- Strengthening of weak muscles;
- Searching for the correct posture in static and dynamic conditions;
- Perception and self-correction of postural deficiencies.
If the treatment is carried out correctly and systematically, the results are excellent.
