Functional Exercises Q & A

What is functional exercise?

Functional exercise trains you to use your body safely and efficiently when performing daily activities. It can also be used to correct postural imbalances that can lead to injuries or chronic pain conditions. 

The team of exercise specialists at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora is lead by a corrective exercise expert with a degree in kinesiology who has extensive experience designing exercise programs that address a wide range of musculoskeletal imbalances associated with poor posture and other conditions.

What are the benefits of functional exercise?

When you go about your daily life, you typically move more than one joint and recruit more than one muscle group at a time. Functional exercises are designed to mimic this process, rather than isolating a few muscles in one area of the body. By doing so, functional exercise strengthens and prepares your body to perform movements that it makes on a regular basis. 

Additional benefits of functional exercise include improved balance, flexibility, and agility. 

Which conditions can functional exercise address?

Some of the conditions functional and corrective exercise can improve include:

  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Postural imbalance
  • Chronic pain
  • Joint conditions

A custom exercise program can help you make a complete recovery after an injury.
