How to Retrain Your Deep Core Stability Muscles
Your Deep Core Stability Muscles can be retrained using specialised low-level activation exercises.
While a very skilled physiotherapist who has training in deep core activation can observe and palpate for the correct muscle contraction, the best way is to actually see them working on a real-time ultrasound scan.
Ultrasound guidance allows you and your therapist to see and correct these specific deep core muscles inside your stomach, lower back and pelvic floor as you attempt to contract them.

Beware of “Core Stability” Exercises!
Unfortunately some fitness instructors who profess to know how to activate your core stability muscles are actually doing you harm. Most progress your exercises far too quickly and bypass these important muscles to further strengthen your outer abdominal muscles and leave your deep muscles weak.
For expert advice on your deep core stability muscles, please arrange for an appointment with your PhysioWorks physiotherapist.
