Do you ever find yourself slouching in a chair, slumping at the computer or your belly sticking out after standing for awhile? This is a sign of core muscle weakness that can negatively affect your health and create back or neck pain. What Are Your Core Muscles? Your “core” is the group of muscles that help stabilize your body and give a strong point from which your skeleton can move properly with good posture. The core is made up of your abdominal, low back, pelvic, and gluteus muscles. When any one of these groups is weak, it causes instability and makes it hard to use your body properly. The result is strain to different areas of your body, especially the back and neck muscles. This causes bad posture, fatigue, inflammation, and pain. Can’t I Just Do Sit-ups? Strengthening the abdominals is just one component of strengthening your core muscles. It takes an expert, trained in the science of human movement to analyze where your pain is coming from. Our physical therapy professionals are just those experts. Whether your pain is from your back, neck, shoulders, or legs, we perform a thorough analysis of your posture, movement, and strength. This allows us to pinpoint exactly what is causing your pain. Only then, can an effective treatment plan be made to obtain the fastest results.
