Corrective flexibility focuses on correcting postural and joint dysfunctions, along with correcting muscle imbalances. Corrective flexibility involves using self-myofascial release (also known as foam rolling), static stretching, and neuromuscular stretching techniques.
Diane Armstrong, NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answeredCorrective flexibility is bringing muscles back into proper length. With muscular imbalances, one set of muscles become tight while the opposing muscle group become overly stretched causing weakness in both. Over time, the tight muscle begins pulling on the joints it’s connected to and can pull it out of alignment. So this type of flexibility corrects muscle imbalances, increases your range of motion, decreases excessive tension on the muscles, relieves joint stress. At the same time improving neuromuscular efficiency and function and maintaining a normal functional length of the muscles. Wow, what a tension release!
