Core Stability Training


Core stability refers to the muscles around the pelvis, lumbar spine, abdominal wall and diaphragm and their ability to work together to control movements of the lower back, trunk and lumbar spine. The main muscles involved are the abdominals, back extensor muscles and the diaphragm. Weakness in these muscles can cause lower back pain, hip pain, groin pain and poor posture. In recent years research has found core stability to be essential in the treatment and prevention of lower back pain. Lack of core stability can lead to tiliting of the pelvis which in turn causes muscle imbalance. Physiotherapy aims to restore this imbalance through joint mobilisation, deep tissue massage, prescription of a rehabilitation programme of flexibility and strengthening exercises, advice and education.
