Functional vs. Corrective Exercises

Written by Eric D'Agati Wednesday, July 8, 2015 FMS Pod Casts

<== Video for jsbme1tU ==>

Highlights 

  • When and why should you use a corrective exercise? 

  • What is the difference between a corrective exercise and a functional exercise? 

  • Not everyone needs to be corrected. Make sure not to spend time fixing things that don’t need to be fixed. 

  • Fitness professionals should have a system in place to differentiate between the following types of clients:

    • A client who is cleared for any and all activity 

    • A client who is cleared for activity but this activity requires modification

    • A client who needs to be referred to a medical professional

    Eric, 


    I am a former client of yours, and you were very effective in helping me resolve certain issues.   Unfortunately, Ive been unable to find you since One Human Performance is no longer there.   How can I connect with you directly or atleast to get a referral from you, if you're no longer doing this great work.    Peter Kalmus  646.296.7344.   peter@peterkalmus.com.  Ive been looking for you for two years.   Thanks.
