The core is made up of over 30 muscles and supports the center of our body, which stabilizes our movements. The core specifically makes up the muscles around the belly, and the mid and lower back. Core stabilization is the official term given in strengthening the core muscles. Many people fixate their core workouts solely on their abs because they believe the abs are the most important part of the core. However, this is a misconception. Overworking the abs by doing endless crunches can jeopardize the health of the spine. The core muscles support the spine and should not be over-exercised. Strengthening the core through various low-impact exercises upholds the integrity of the spine. At Round Rock Health and Wellness, we have trained Chiropractors, who can assist you and teach and show you how to keep your core strong. Dr. Binner and Dr. Miller are well-adverse in this area and make it a part of their routine chiropractic consultations and treatment sessions to discuss the importance of core strength.
About the Treatments @headingTag>
Core stabilization consists of various manual techniques performed by the chiropractor and low-impact exercises that strengthen the core. Since core muscles support the spine, lumbar exercises and programs are commonly used to reinforce the core. Dr. Binner can discuss core stabilization programs that Round Rock Health and Wellness offers for its patients. He may also prescribe some physical activity that can be performed at home. Understanding how to perform lumbar exercises is essential in optimizing their benefits for your body. Our facility prides itself in instructing patients and guiding them through exercises that strengthen their health.

What to Expect@headingTag>
You can expect to have a face-to-face consultation with Dr. Binner before you receive treatment. Chiropractic care for the core will often include adjustments to the spine. These adjustments are a combination of manual and instrument assisted maneuvers. Core stabilization programs may include exercise ball therapy and yoga. These kinds of exercises make the core stronger and reinforce the spine. When these moves are performed on a weekly basis, you can expect to have better posture, less pain in your lower back and more flexibility.
Common exercises for core stabilization:
- Quadriceps stretch
- Supine spinal twist
- Hip flexor stretch
- Side bridge
- Hamstring stretch
- Bird dog exercise
- Glute stretch
