If you suffer from an aching back or neck, it could simply be that your core muscles are weak. You may have heard of the term “core”, but what is it? Your core is the foundation of your body and like a building, needs to be strong and supportive. If your foundation is weak or crooked, then theotherpartsofyourbody,which relyon this,willnot functionproperly. The timing and strength of various muscle contractions is critical for your proper body function. If your timing is off and your muscles are weak, abnormal strains occur to your spine, causing a lot of common aches and pains. Your core muscles consist of a wide variety of skeletal muscles that keep you erect and help you move around on two feet. The core is a group of muscles in the pelvis, spine, abdominal and upper thigh areas. These muscles are arranged in different angles that are layered to give you support and stability. Most people suffer from back pain at some point. Most people will experience back pain some time in their life due to core muscleweakness.When thespinal joints,hip joints,sacroiliac jointsand

the muscles of the abdomen, pelvis, spine and hips don’t move well, a resulting strain occurs on the spine. This causes pain and can occur at any stage of life. However, this typically happens as we become older and less active as adults. How does the core become weak and stiff? A simple answer; use it or lose it.

Once the core is weakened, the weight of your body rests on your spinal discs, joints and ligaments causing long term damage.
