Deep Core Muscle Stability Retraining
What is Your Core Stability?
Core Stabilisation is your body’s ability to dynamically control and support your spine via deep and specific muscles.
Your spine is an inherently unstable area. Your lower back has five vertebrae that sit on top of a triangular bone called the sacrum, which wedges itself into the pelvis. The vertebrae allow twisting, bending and arching. Unfortunately, without constant muscular support or your core stabilisers, your spine would fall in a heap on the ground.
Your deep core muscles are the main structures that support, control and move your lower spine and pelvis. They are also the most energy efficient and ideally located muscles to do the job for 24 hours a day.
When you suffer back pain, we know that your deep core stability muscles automatically turn off! This leaves your spine vulnerable to further injury and persisting chronic pain. However, you can reactivate these muscles via specific retraining.
Your core stability can be tested by an experienced Physiotherapist who has undertaken core stability retraining. An even more effective technique for the testing of your core stability muscles is via real-time ultrasound retraining.
