As part of The Woodstock Chiropractors community outreach program in Oxfordshire, we were really pleased to be invited to present a workshop on managing and preventing pain…
Think of your core muscles as the sturdy central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body, like an anatomical bridge.
The ‘core’, from a muscular standpoint, is so much more than just a solid six-pack! It essentially includes any and every muscle that moves the trunk and aids in maintaining a stable and neutral spine. In fact, a strong, flexible core underpins almost everything you do from sitting at your desk to gym workouts or gardening and even balance.
Increasing core stability can help reach goals such as improving athletic performance, reducing lower back pain and injury, improving muscular endurance… and developing those abs!
