The aim of core stability programming is to recruit deep trunk (core) muscles and then control the position of the spine during dynamic movements.
The deep trunk muscles are, Transversus abdominis (TA), Multifidus (MF), Internal Oblique (IO), paraspinal and pelvic floor, al are key to active support of the lumber spine. The co contraction of the muscles produce forces via the ‘theracolumbar fascia’ (TLF) and the ‘intra-abdominal pressure’ (IAP) mechanism which stabilises the lumber spine and the paraspinal and MF muscles act directly to resist the forces acting on the lumber spine.
Having identified these key muscles the type of training required is specific and with any type of strength and conditioning training. This specificity of training takes into account the type of contraction, the muscle fibre and the anatomical position, deep trunk muscles act as stabilisers and involve static and isometric contractions. They must act as stabilisers continuously throughout everyday activities as well as during fitness and sporting actions.
Our strength and conditioning coach, Pilates trainer and health and fitness specialist can help you to develop your core muscles and stabilise back muscles.
