Core stability is a misunderstood term. Typically, the core is associated with the abdominal muscles groups and stability is associated with isometric or static strength. However in actuality, the core consists of the abdominal muscles groups (transverse abdominis, internal obliques, external obliques and rectus abdominis), hip abductors/ adductors, hip flexors, and lumbar spine.
In addition, it is the lumbar spine that is primarily responsible for posture and stability providing the strength needed for stability especially injuries suffered from auto accidents.
Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work together seemlessly. This inevitably leads to improved balance and stability in all facets of your life. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on the stability of your core muscles.
If you have suffered an injury to your core and require rehabilitation, or are simply looking to strengthen your core to maintain wellness or to avoid future injury, please schedule an appointment with our Palatka chiropractic physicians today, at 386-456-4878.
