It’s our job as chiropractors to treat everyone who is suffering from e.g. neck pain, back pain and headache due to muscle or joint complaints. The challenge with these ailments is that conventional medicine might not work because it does not target the underlying cause. A more specialist or functional approach may be the best option. We employ the greatest chiropractors Westminster has to help you recover and we also apply muscle stimulation (read more here).
There’s more to improving your core than just getting a six-pack. The core is not just your abdominal muscles but also buttock, shoulder and back muscles. Many people experience back pain at some point. A huge part of this may have to do with weak core muscles. These soft tissues work with one another as a belt. Together, they support the torso, specifically the back. Therefore it is important to look after them and ensure they are strong.
The following are ways strengthening your core can assist with back support.
Strengthening core muscles aids in minimising pain. Specific exercises can help with this, providing better returns than general exercise, normal medical treatment, or no treatment at all. Our chiropractors can give you help and create an exercise plan that targets the right muscle groups.
A strong core can improve your stability too. It strengthens a trio of systems. The first is the neutral, which includes the spinal cord and brain. Next, we have the active, which has the muscles and tendons. Finally, there’s the passive. This is the ligaments and bone.
People with low back pain aren’t as likely to trigger their core muscles or may be slower at activating the muscles. As a result, they have less stability and therefore less strength. With enough stability, you may be able to alleviate low back pain.
Core muscles are vital to keeping and improving your posture as well. If they are weak they contribute to slouching. By focusing on them and making them stronger, however, you’ll have fewer problems.
At Inc-Health, we can provide you with plenty of information relating to strengthening exercises. We feel that this is equally as important as supplying our treatments. With the right knowledge, people can take better care of their bodies. Come to the best chiropractors Westminster has for this information and the right support.
