Core Stability Training

Good balance is an essential part of our everyday living and is important during all functional movements such as sitting, standing, walking and reaching. To balance we require the activation of the 3 core stability muscles; multifidus to extend the vertebral column, transversus abdominis to unilaterally rotate the trunk to the same side and bilaterally flex the vertebral column and the internal obliques. When these muscles work effectively they hold the spine and pelvis in a neutral position, this stabilises the trunk to take up the weight during activities so that movements can be initiated and controlled more effectively. If an individual's balance has been impaired, for example due to a spinal injury, then they will experience great difficulty in carrying out functional tasks and may be at risk of falling.

At Sport and Spinal Physiotherapy our specialist physiotherapists can provide you with treatment aimed at strengthening your core stability in order to improve your static balance e.g. your balance in sitting as well as your dynamic balance e.g. your balance when moving around. Your physiotherapist will provide you with an exercise programme aimed at strengthening the 3 core stability muscles as well as advising on appropriate exercise equipment and starting positions.
