Becoming a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) has enabled me to work with a population whose goals are more therapeutic in nature. Many every day aches and pains are caused by an imbalance in your muscular system. The human muscular system is often referred to as the kinetic chain. And like any other chain, it’s only as strong as its weakest link. Through various assessments I can identify where the weak links are at and help to correct them. There are several natural ways to accomplish this that include, but are not limited to foam rolling, stretching, strengthening and muscle activation techniques.
Another area where a qualified CES is needed is continuing physical therapy. When a physical therapy prescription runs out, often times the patient requires a continuing supervised workout regimen. My CES certification has taught me how to safely design such programs.
