Just Thinking

Is this a sign of the apocalypse? I saw where a MLB team named two corrective exercise specialists to its staff, not one but two in addition to the athletic training staff and a physical therapist – overkill? I am not 100% sure what a corrective exercise specialist is. What are they correcting? Why do you need so-called corrective exercise if you have a comprehensive well-designed sport appropriate athletic development program? Corrective exercise specialists do not solve a problem, in my opinion it intensifies the problem. Therapy & corrective exercise does not make up for good consistent training. It is an undo focus on what the athlete can’t do instead of focusing on what they can do. Lets put the emphasis on being proactive with sound athletic development program based on sport demands & players individual needs. Compliance to a comprehensive Athletic Development will do more good than any corrective exercise intervention.
