Core stabilization is extremely important – and effective – for those suffering from any number of low back disorders or conditions, which may include disc herniation among others. This form of exercise strengthens the muscles that support the individual vertebrae, reduces loading of the intervertebral discs, and reduces compensation and dysfunction of “mover” muscles (ie. muscle spasm) which results from trying to support the spinal structures.
Currently, core stabilization group programming in combination with gentle yoga is offered locally by Meghan McKay (PT) in 8-week cycles during both the fall and winter/spring. Please email or call the office for further details.
