About Core Stabilization
- With Therapeutic Edge
Core stabilization refers to the deep inner muscles of the back, abdomen, and pelvis that contract just prior to any body movement. They work to help hold the body in a stable and safe position. Having a strong core will help reduce your pain, increase your strength and power, and improve your function. Pain, injury, and/or dysfunction can inhibit the body’s natural ability to contract these muscles prior to movement. This can lead to chronic pain and dysfunction in the lower back and pelvis. Treatment will include assessment; correction of posture and body mechanics; abdominal and low back muscular control; pelvic, lumbar, and thoracic spine individual joint mobility/stability; muscular control in the back, pelvis and legs, stabilization of neck and shoulder girdle; education about your injury, prevention strategies, and core stabilization exercises.
