Postpartum Core Fitness Training & Rehab is available from Redefining Health to train, heal, build and repair the abdominal wall after childbirth. Many moms are walking around with damaged, deflated or unengaged cores and don’t even know it. Many don’t realize crunches not only don’t work BUT actually damage the core! Pilates 100’s, v-sits are included in this category. Planks and hands and knees exercises can be damaging as well depending on if you have a diastasis recti. When most people think of core muscles, they immediately think of the abdominals. However, the core is made up of much more than that! In fact, your core muscles include your abdominal, lower back, diaphragm, pelvic and gluteal muscles.
This group of muscles that make up your core help with stabilizing your body, constructing your posture, and allowing your skeleton to move properly. When any of the muscles within that group become weak, your body experiences an instability that makes it difficult for your body to function properly. As a result, you end up compensating by straining different areas of the body, most commonly the back and neck muscles. As a result, this leads to undesirable consequences, such as poor posture, fatigue, inflammation, or pain.
Fortunately, at Redefining Health Physical Therapy, we can help relieve or avoid those unwanted symptoms by strengthening your core! To find out more about our Postpartum Core Fitness Training and Rehab program, contact us for an in-home appointment today.
