Our Unique Corrective Therapeutic Exercise Protocol Can Ease Chronic Aches and Pains
Have you been looking for a way to boost your physical activity while still reducing your pain symptoms? Corrective Therapeutic exercise is the most efficient way to regain function and live pain-free!
What is Corrective Therapeutic Exercise?
Well the reality is you can go wrong with just strong!
It’s not just about strength, muscles must fire in the proper sequence and proper degree so that that action at any given joint is executed accurately.
The problem with most exercise protocols is that they do not address an extremely important fact. This efﬁcacy of the muscle system is dependent on its controller, the central nervous system (CNS).
Our Corrective Therapeutic Exercise protocol utilizes advanced clinically sound techniques to restore and optimize the sequential detailed neurological input (afferent signals) and output (efferent signals) directed by our CNS.
Optimizing this process that will predict how successful our physical therapy efforts will be.
We call this Muscle Pattern Reorganization which is a protocol and philosophy in which we both prepare the muscles to be strengthened and then perform our exercises with the goal of optimizing the efficacy of the controller (CNS).
Research clearly shows that the first step in normalizing proper muscle activity is engagement in the proper process and since this process is dictated by the CNS we are simply following the body’s natural blueprint for optimizing muscle strength and motor control.
Strengthening without first restoring this process would be like building a home on an uneven foundation.
Our Muscle Pattern Reorganization protocol is what sets us apart and is a healthy and easy way for people of all ages to find relief from pain, and Lumina Wellness Physical Therapy physical therapists are proud to provide it in our Wilmington, NC clinic.
Many people believe that someone doing physical therapy is healing from a recent operation. However, that is not always the case. Our unique Muscle Pattern Reorganization protocol provides a multitude of benefits for anyone wishing to restore their strength, endurance, flexibility, or stability.
Physical therapy along with our unique corrective therapeutic exercise approach can be used as a treatment for any pain, injury, or ailment someone may be facing.

Benefits of corrective therapeutic exercise
Exercise programs are aimed at improving health, so you can feel better than you have been feeling. Our goal here at Lumina Wellness Physical Therapy is to use clinically sound principles to restore your strength to its previous state, or better!
Corrective therapeutic exercise is much different from most exercise programs. This is because it includes advanced sequential targeted movements that are aimed at relieving pain and restoring you to your optimum level of physical function.
Corrective therapeutic exercise can also be used as a way to prevent additional impairment or disability when facing certain physical risks.
There is a wide variety of corrective therapeutic exercises and each one has a unique purpose. These include:
It’s easy to think of exercise as something we do with our muscles, but exercise can also help our body’s other systems.
While it is important to work the muscles, joints, and soft tissues in the body, it is also important to help them relax and loosen.
Even though lying down when you’re in pain is not always the best mode of treatment for pain, relaxation does play a role.
Pain relieving techniques including heat, cold, electrical stimulation, massage, or trigger point therapy, can all help the body relax, improve your sleep, lower your blood pressure, and keep you coming back for more exercise!
Coordination and Balance Exercises
Every time you stand, walk, sit, brush your teeth, cook a meal, or take care of your daily activities, you are testing your coordination between the muscular and skeletal systems in your body.
If you cannot keep your balance or lose your coordination, you lose the ability to care for yourself and you put yourself at risk for falls and injuries.
Your ability to care for yourself or your loved ones depends on your ability to balance and coordinate your arms, legs, hands, and feet. That is why balance and coordination exercises are so important, especially after an injury or illness.
Range of Motion Exercises
These kinds of exercises are aimed at increasing the range of motion in your joints and soft tissues.
This may be done through active, passive, or assisted stretching activities designed to help your joints move better, without pain.
Hours spent at desks, bending over keyboards, poor muscle tone, or simply poor posture habits can all lead to pain or injury.
What you may not realize is that posture has a direct impact on muscle strength, balance, and risk of injury.
Posture exercises are aimed at correcting poor posture, not just when you exercise, but also in your daily life activities to alleviate aches and pains.
Muscle Performance Exercises
Increasing power, endurance, and muscle strength are vital to good balance and stability, as well as bone and joint health.
Resistance and endurance exercises are designed to increase muscle strength without injury.
How physical therapist can improve your wellbeing
It is a common misconception that one should constantly rest when they are in pain. When you’re in pain, your immediate reaction may be to lie down or get in bed, however, this can cause your muscles to weaken or atrophy during the healing process. This can lead to decreased functionality and more pain in the long run.
The good news is that physical therapy in our Wilmington, NC clinic can help you. Our physical therapists are movement experts, trained in improving strength, range of motion, and overall function of the body.
At Lumina Wellness Physical Therapy, our goal is to help you live a pain-free life with even greater strength and endurance than you had before.
