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.
