WHAT DO I NEED TO LOOK FOR WHEN HIRING A CORRECTIVE EXERCISE SPECIALIST?
A corrective exercise specialist is a recovery and wellbeing professional that specialises in the movement and static posture of the human body.
Unlike physiotherapists and chiropractors, a corrective exercise specialist does not hold a degree qualification for their line of work, but instead holds a level 4 qualification in corrective exercise and usually a level 3 personal training qualification alongside.
Stand-out attributes of a corrective exercise specialist include;
Teaching styles you can engage with and thrive from
Personality traits that suit your needs to be pushed and motivated
Understanding your needs and how to convey them into an action plan
Significant attention to detail
Quality of services offered
The ability to provide concise and clear instructions
Empathetic towards any pain or discomfort felt during the process
Before enrolling, it is important to make sure a corrective exercise specialist can help you on your recovery and postural journey where a chiropractor or physiotherapist isn't the most appropriate option. But most importantly, make sure they are the right fit for you and your circumstances.
