How a Stronger Core Improves your Life
Compelling reasons to improve your core health
As an office of chiropractic, we focus on the spine as a foundation for wellness. An auxiliary to the spine’s health is the core: the network of muscles that extend from the lower stomach to the upper back and are involved in every motion we perform on a daily basis. Developing the strength and stability of your core is a key way of supporting the spine. Here’s are some reasons to improve core strength:
- Protect the nervous system: the spine is a key conduit of the nervous system, connecting brain and body. A stronger core prevents the compression which weighs down on our spines and puts spinal nerves under pressure.
- Prevent injury: the core muscles facilitate and stabilize movement, ensuring that your spine does not suffer injury from excessive movement.
- Increase the longevity of your spine: the muscles of the core are your spine’s key ally in maintaining posture and strength. A lot of the weakness and degeneration inherent in our spines’ age can be mitigated by a stronger core.
- Make yourself more attractive: and while this may appeal to our inner vanity, a stronger core helps us maintain a more upright posture, which not only projects confidence but contributes to better spinal health.
How we help improve core strength and spinal health at Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center
At our office in Milpitas, we believe that knowledge is power! The first step toward a stronger core and a more stable spine is awareness! We can help you determine when the way you use your core is letting you down. From posture to exercise and diet, we are committed to helping you improve your core health across the board. Chiropractic modalities maintain spinal alignment, increase circulation and improve nerve function throughout the core. From here, we focus on elongating the deep-lying muscles of the core and strengthening the phasic muscles which lend strength and support to the lower back. If you are interested in improving your core health to benefit the spine, give our office in Milpitas a call to schedule an appointment today.
