Working to
your core

Core stability & posture

Improving posture isn’t just about changing how you sit or stand. It’s also about strengthening your core so you carry your body in the best way possible for your health and comfort.

In addition to your abdominal muscles, your core includes muscles in your back and hips that work together to stabilize your spine and keep it in alignment. When your core muscles are weak, your spine doesn’t have adequate support to maintain perfect posture naturally. Your other muscles begin to compensate to help you stay erect, which can lead not just to a slouchy stance, but a host of other issues such as instability; neck and shoulder tension; lower back pain or injury.

Core stability describes the ability to control the position and movement of the central portion of the body (the trunk). The ‘core’ muscles consist of many different muscles that stabilize the spine, pelvis and shoulder girdle and provide a solid foundation for movements in the extremities. Our core muscles play a very important role in our posture. Having a strong core is essential for good health, a nice posture, great balance, and stability. If your core muscles are not in shape then this makes you more susceptible to falls, injuries and back problems.
