Strengthen your core to beat back pain

Strengthen your core and strengthen your back.


If you have lower back pain, one of the causes may be weak core muscles. The muscles of your core are not just the abs but also include the muscles of the hips, pelvic floor and spine.

As we get older, our muscle strength reduces year on year unless we proactively maintain it with exercise. As the muscles weaken, they lose their ability to support the back in its proper alignment, which can eventually cause pain. The solution? Get into the habit of performing exercises that target and strengthen the core muscles.
