Know Your Core

Did you know that “using your core” doesn’t mean doing a lot of crunches or simply tightening your abs during an activity? ◾️Our bodies are supported by multiple muscles working in a balanced system to create static and dynamic stability. It is never about just one muscle. ◾️In fact, if we use our abdominals incorrectly and our muscle efforts are imbalanced, it can create more pain and discomfort with daily activities. ◾️A licensed Physical Therapist can evaluate the strategies you are currently using and instruct you in the proper posture, body mechanics, breathing techniques, and strengthening exercises to achieve your movement goals and reduce pain. ◾️Learning how to correctly utilize your core can help with many different conditions including but not limited to low back pain, hip pain, pelvic pain, diastasis recti, incontinence and more. ◾️At Mission Peak Physical Therapy, we offer Pilates based rehabilitation services which can be especially effective in addressing these areas. ◾️Interested in learning more about how Physical Therapy might be helpful to you?
