Flexibility and Core Stabilization – Exercises Hold the Correction
The best core exercises may surprise you. It’s not enough to just do ab crunches and sit ups. To build a strong core you need to exercise a variety of muscles, from your hips to your shoulders.
Most people think of the core as a nice six-pack, or strong, toned abs, but the truth is that the abdominal muscles are a very small part of the core. The abs have very limited and specific action, and what experts refer to as the “core” actually consists of different muscles that stabilize the spine and pelvis, and run the entire length of the torso.
When these muscles contract, they stabilize the spine, pelvis, and shoulder girdle and create a solid base of support. When this happens, we can generate powerful movements of the extremities.
The core muscles also make it possible to stand upright and move on two feet. These muscles help control movements, transfer energy, shift body weight, and move in any direction. A strong core distributes the stresses of weight-bearing and protects the back. Core conditioning exercise programs need to target all these muscle groups to be effective
Importance of Proper Joint Mechanics
Our Board Certified Chiropractors are equipped with many years of patient care experience, having successfully treated thousands. Because of trauma(stress) and aging our joints become stiff and lose proper function. Our Chiropractors are skilled in the “adjustment”, or the mobilization of spinal or other joints by hand, or by use of other therapeutic devices. Introducing mobility, function and flexibility back mto the spinal joints results in a pain free lifestyle.
We utilize passive therapies such as cold laser therapy, hydromassage, therpeutic ultrasound, manual massage therapy and gentle joint mobilization. These specific technioques are especially helpful during the first weeks of care, and will reduce the inflammatory process which is causing some of the pain.
