How is your posture? Posture is an important part of everyday life that many of us tend not to focus on – Do you slouch in your desk chair, or slump at your computerwhile you dowork?When you stand for prolonged periods of time, do you notice your stomach sticking out a bit? These are all signs of core muscleweakness that can affect your posture and cause pain in your back or neck. Your core muscles help you do a lot – from sitting, to walking, to doing a large number of physical activities. If your core muscles are weak, you may unknowingly be causing some damage to your body. Contact Iberia Sports & Rehab, today to figure out howwe can help you strengthen your core muscles and improve your overall health.

WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE CORE MUSCLES? When most people think of core muscles, they immediately think of the abdominals. However, the core is made up of muchmore than that! In fact, your core muscles include your abdominal, lower back, pelvic, and gluteus muscles. The group of muscles that make up your core help with stabilizing your body, constructing your posture, and allowing your skeleton to move properly.When anyof themuscleswithin that group becomeweak, your body experiences an instability that makes it difficult for your body to function properly. As a result, you end up compensating by straining different areas of the body, most commonly the back and neck muscles. As a result, this leads to undesirable consequences, such as poor posture, fatigue, inflammation, or pain
