Advanced Corrective Institute (A.C.I.)
There are varying philosophies on the approach to the rehabilitation of injury & pain however there are only two strategies of execution; the “management” or “correction” of each. For decades the problem of injury & pain has steadily reached epic proportions. Never before have there been so many pain sufferers. Never before have there been so many failed surgeries as well as those who abuse pain medication. Unresolved pain is one of the greatest complaints that doctors hear from their patients. These stunning realities are the result of an incomplete model that is only capable of “managing” injury & pain.

Corrective therapy (also Neuromuscular Corrective Therapy). It is a proprietary manual technique of deep tissue therapy for restoring anatomical imbalances, injury, as well as, circulation dysfunction and other pathology-specific problems such as scar tissue, inflamed and entrapped nerves, joint impingement, laxity syndromes, stress fractures, neuropathy, arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuroma, and more. The therapy provides healing to individuals to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and function throughout life. This includes providing healing in conditions where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors. Corrective therapy identifies and maximizes the quality of life through increasing functional movement potential within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation. This encompasses physical, psychological, emotional, and social well being. It involves the interaction between Corrective Therapist (CT), patients/clients, other health professionals, families, care givers, and communities in a process where movement potential is assessed and goals are agreed upon, using knowledge and skills unique to Corrective Therapists. Corrective therapy is performed by either a corrective therapist (CT) or an assistant (CTA) acting under their direction.
