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;

  • Professional conduct

  • Punctuality

  • Organisational skills

  • 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.
