What is Core Stability?

Introduction to core stability explaining basic principles and muscles involved.

Core stability is the name given to the strengthening of the corset of muscles surrounding the back and abdomen. These muscles are also known as the core or powerhouse muscles and provide a solid base upon which all other muscles can work upon to initiate movement.

A comprehensive strengthening program of these core muscles can be used for injury prevention, rehabilitation and sport performance enhancement.

The ‘core’ muscles operate at an unconscious level in healthy individuals to protect and stabilize the joints before movement occurs. When good core stability is developed you will be able to subconsciously use the right muscles at the right time with the right intensity to control the torso appropriately for the task being performed.
