Core strength is something our Toronto physiotherapy and sports medicine specialists often emphasize in many different cases and situations. Why is it so important, in so many ways?
Beach season may be over but there's a lot more to core strength than having a beach ready body. Sure, it helps you look great, but building core strength will help your general health and has many other benefits too. The core muscles have three dimensional depth and they move in all three planes. When you strengthen your deep core muscles, your overall fitness will improve. Most movements of the body – even when legs and arms are involved – begin with the core and are stabilized by the core.
Core stability comes before strength. When you work with your core muscles, you're developing the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen, and those areas will be able to move in a fluid and balanced way. Perhaps best of all, you don't need special equipment to work the core muscles. Our Toronto physiotherapists can devise exercises that are tailored to your fitness levels and goals.
Here are some of the other benefits.
Our Toronto physiotherapy and chiropractic professionals can help you achieve your core strength and stability goals, and provide advice on how it can affect and benefit your condition or your sport. Give one of our Toronto clinics a call today to set up your evaluation.
