Core strengthening is a key component to maintaining the health of your spine; however, when done improperly, exercise can actually lead to more injury. Dr. Allen’s expertise and experience gives patients the education they need to move forward with their exercise programs with confidence. Dr. Allen will even meet with your trainer to discuss the do’s and dont’s for you to maintain the alignment you get, and keep it for good. Some tips on strengthening your core: 1. If you feel it in your back, you might be doing it wrong, 2. Your abdominal muscles are only one part of your core. 3. The gluteals, hamstrings, hip flexors and back muscles are actually even more important for core strength than your abs. 4. Adding balancing exercises to your routine helps strengthen your core. The key is finding the right exercises for your condition; this is what we do at Allen Chiropractic. We know there is no cookie cutter, run of the mill type practice that will get your needs met as an individual. That is why we customize the treatment that best suits your condition.
