Strengthen your CORE??

               Our core muscles help us to stand up, sit and move around without pain. Strengthen your core is important especially if you suffer from low back pain or any type of trauma to the lumbar spine.

Pain can be triggered by some combination of overuse, muscle strain, and/or injuries to the muscles, ligaments, and discs that support the spine. Over time, a muscle injury that has not been managed correctly may lead to an overall imbalance in the spine. This can lead to constant tension on the muscles, ligaments, bones, making the back more prone to injury or re-injury.

Below are some of our top  exercises to strengthen core muscles. These exercises are taken from the Princeton University Lumbar/Core Strength and Stability Exercises.
