How’s your core stability?

Posted by on Dec 14, 2019 in Exercises, Health and Wellness

So much in the body draws strength and protection from the core. So, in this week’s Quick Tip, we’re focusing on how to work towards more stability in this crucial area of the body. Core stabilization is important for many of us — but can be of special concern for athletes, anyone with low back pain/stiffness, and anyone who sits at a desk or drives frequently.

In this week’s Quick Tip, Jenny and Chris guide us through the Bird Dog Exercise, a great warm-up to get the core ready for changing conditions. Doing regular core stabilization work like this can help take pressure off your spine — preventing injury and optimizing your body’s ability to work as a whole. Try it out and let us know what you think! If you’re finding it difficult, just give us a call. We can talk through how manual therapy might support your stability — whether through musculoskeletal or neurological-based bodywork.
