Why Intrinsic Core Muscle Strengthening Works.

At our clinic we dont only want to fix a particular condition, we want to make sure in never happens again. By properly strengthening the intrinsic core muscles we can overcome the typical issues people have down the line.

This page is to provide a technical overview of the muscles we target during intrinsic core strengthening. If you’d like to know why we use this therapy along with our other treatments, you can learn more on our intrinsic core strengthening page.

The Intrinsic Core Stability Muscles

The Intrinsic Core Stability Muscles In the Lower Spine are:

  • The Multifidus 
  • The Transversus Abdominis 
  • The Pelvic Floor 

The Multifidus 

The Multifidus muscle’s primary function is to provide stability for the back. They are short muscles that run up from the on the sides of one vertebra up to the middle part of the back of the next vertebra upwards. They work by providing small, fine-tuning movements for posture. They are active all day long.

Transversus Abdominis

The Transversus Abdominis is the deepest abdominal muscle. It is the “corset muscle” of the spine and pelvis. In the typical situation, TA contracts in anticipation of body motion to guard the spinal joints, ligaments, discs and nerves. 

Pelvic Floor & Diaphragm

The Transversus Abdominis and the Multifidus work in together with your diaphragm and pelvic floor to make a flexible but stable region in and around your lumbar spine. When these intrinsic core muscles are strong and doing their job, gives the ability to stabilise your lumbar spine in its many positions. This enables you to overcome back problems and reduce your chances of a reoccurrence.
