Core stability plays a role in low back pain treatment and prophylaxis. We start to develop muscles of our core from a young age. The core is more than just the muscles in the front of our abdomen. The core also includes the muscles on the side of our torso, our spinal muscles in the back, the diaphragm, and even our pelvic floor.
- As adults, our core stability can wane from lack of use combined with many occupations involving prolonged sitting or standing

- By regularly training your core stabilization muscles, you will be less likely to have back pain, and if you do develop back pain you may also recover more quickly
Core stability remains important from infancy to adulthood.
We always recommend making an appointment for any new onset spinal or extremity pain as well as for re-aggravations of previous symptoms to properly diagnose the underlying cause and to determine the most appropriate treatment.
