Core strengthening and stabilization in therapeutic exercisesAuthor(s):
Abhilash SS and Dr. George JosephAbstract:
“Core”- the area of the body made up of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex. It is made up of 29 muscles which include the lumbar spine muscles, abdominal muscles, and hip muscles. It acts and operates as an integral unit and helps the structural components to operate optimally. The various concepts of core stabilization are
. Improvement of dynamic postural control, muscle balance, dynamic functional performance, and increased neuromuscular efficiency.
. Spinal stabilization
. Postural considerations
. Neuromuscular considerations
Guidelines for core stability training include comprehensive evaluation, systematic, progressive, and functional programme, muscle contraction spectrum, programme variation. Core stabilization exercise should include a proprioceptively rich program, and continuum and should be safe and challenging. It should stress on multiple planes and incorporate a multi-sensory environment. It should be activity-specific and progressively functional.
