Neutral Spine and Core Stabilization
If you suffer from an aching back or even neck pain, weakness in your core muscles can be to blame. Do you have to sit for long periods at a computer, in the car, or are you just not that active anymore? All these positions can lead your core muscles to become weak. Even if you exercise regularly, unless you target your core muscles, you can cause an imbalance in your muscle strength, straining your back and putting you at risk for injury.
When your core is strong, it means your spine is better protected against injury when you twist, lift or strain your body doing an activity. At Kinney Physical Therapy & Wellness, we perform neutral spine and core stabilization techniques that can help. Contact us at Westlake Village, CA center today for more information.
