Core Training

By on November 15, 2013

Core Stability training focuses on the “core” of the human body. This is where your upper body and lower body come together and it is one of the most vulnerable and damaged parts of the human form.

Your core stabilizers (specifically your transversus abdominus and multifedus) are designed to protect your lower back, and clinical studies have shown that 80% of recurring low back pain can (LBP) can be avoided or rehabilitated by this type of training.

Every slip, stumble and fall you have ever had has damaged the ability of these muscles to function properly. Whether you want to avoid back surgery or you are recovering from it, you will have to engage in exercises that improve the health and vitality of your “core”.
