When Core Strength Is A Medical Necessity, By Karena Thek Lineback

by Karena Thek Lineback

Core strength has been a buzzword in fitness for quite a while now but now we are hearing that same buzz from the medical field.  Clients are being referred to a Pilates program by their medical doctors who know that increased core strength can only mean decreased physical pain. So how do you know if core strengthening will help you?

Will Core Strengthening Help YOU? 

  1. Have you experienced muscle spasms?
  2. Have you suffered an injury that has affected your ability to do everyday activities?
  3. Do you find it difficult to maintain excellent posture?
  4. Is it difficult to sit for long periods of time or does doing the same prolonged activity exacerbate your symptoms?

These are just some questions that are strong indicators that core strengthening could help you. 

Here’s why: 

  1. Muscle spasms happen in the large muscles, turning the small, core muscles off.
  2. Injuries tend to make us rely on our largest muscles because they are the strongest, again, turning the small core muscles off.
  3. If you can maintain excellent posture throughout the day then your core strength is intact.  Excellent posture uses your core muscles all day, every day.
  4. If sitting still hurts, that pain indicates that your spine is collapsing while you sit; pushing bony structure onto nerves or other bony structures instead of being lifted and supported. Pain while pursuing activities indicates that you lack core endurance.

You can now see why core strength, while beneficial to all, is especially beneficial to anyone who has every suffered an injury. As an interesting side note, core strength is not just about the spine and the stomach muscles.  Every joint has core muscles; all the smallest muscles in charge of the balance and control of the joint are the core muscles. So any injury throughout the body benefits from core strength.  Cool, huh?
