A Stronger Core Means A Healthier You! 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 anyone 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 and keeping your spine healthy. It takes an expert, trained in the science of human movement and the structure of the spine to analyze where your pain is coming from. Our physical therapy professionals are spine 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. Call us today to learn more how our Spine Program can eliminate your pain and improve your health!

Patient Spotlight

Minimal to no pain!

“When I first came to this clinic I was scared and in a lot of pain. My first visit, my therapist was able to tell me what was wrong and what needed to be done. I had a bad knee sprain which caused a lot of limping and pain. Within 10 visits the people at iMotion had me walking normal again with minimal to no pain. I can kneel, bend, squat, stretch and stand up with no problem. For that I am very grateful.” -E.G.
