Why Are Your Intrinsic Core Muscles Important?

   This post has been quality-checked in line with our Editorial and Research Policy.

Why is Good “Core Stability” Important?

“Core Stability is your body’s ability to control and support your spine via specific muscles dynamically.

Your spine is an inherently unstable part of your body. For example, your low back has five vertebrae individuals that allow twisting, bending, and arching with no other bones to assist. These vertebrae all sit on top of a triangular bone called the sacrum, which wedges itself into the pelvis. This allows the spine very flexible but also unstable. However, if your intrinsic core muscles are healthy, this will enable you to move and feel great.

Unfortunately, without strong support, all your bones wouldn’t be able to hold themselves up.

Your intrinsic core muscles are the main muscles that support, control, and move your lower spine and pelvis. They are also the most energy-efficient and best-positioned muscles to do the job for 24 hours a day.

However, when they are weak, your spine is not fully supported. This makes it vulnerable to chronic and pain injury, especially if you are doing any physical activity.

What Does Research Say About Intrinsic Core Strengthening

Research has shown that back pain causes your “deep core stability” muscles to STOP working in EVERY case.

Whenever you experience low back pain, your brain immediately inhibits all activity of the transversus abdominis muscle. This occurs 100% of the time. Unfortunately, even if the back pain has gone, the transversus abdominis muscle will not automatically switch on again.

Without the Transversus Abdominis muscle working it exposes your spine to further trauma and further and recurrent back pain. Each episode of back pain becomes a little more severe, and consequently, results in the further weakening of the Transversus Abdominis.

Some alternative causes of muscle inhibition include abdominal surgery, problems with the pelvis, and women after pregnancy.

What Are The Benefits Of Our Intrinsic Core Stability Therapy?

Research has shown that the strengthening of your intrinsic core muscles not only alleviates pain if you’re currently suffering but also prevents pain if you’re already experiencing it. Also, your body’s strength, power, endurance, and performance will improve.
