Low back pain is a common disorder and will affect many of us during our lives. It is important to note that despite often being painful, it is rarely due to anything too serious and in most cases can easily be managed.

Core stability refers the muscular control necessary to stabilise the lumbar spine and pelvis during movement. The lumbar spine and pelvis form the centre point (core) of the body and therefore require stability during all movements of the body.

The Transversus Abdominus Muscle

Your physiotherapist may discuss with you the role of this muscle which forms the deepest layer of your abdominals. The muscle fibers run around the abdomen forming a muscular corset. When they contract, they act to brace the lumbar spine as the corset tightens and in doing so provide support for the spine and pelvis.

Why is Core Stability Important?

Improving your ability to directly control the lumbar spine and pelvis will provide a stable foundation at the centre of the body for all leg and arm movements.

Coordinating the contractions of the core muscles will:

  • Provide support for your spine and may reduce the risk of injuring your back
  • Improve the quality, control and muscular coordination of all your body movements
  • Reduce the amount of stress placed on the lumbar spine during movement

Did you know?

Research has shown that people with low back pain demonstrate a delayed activation of the transversus abdominus and also that retraining this muscle has been shown to reduce low back pain. This can be a very common problem for new mothers following pregnancy..So no matter what your age or level of activity, if you are suffering from troublesome low back injury, we can help.
