Core Strength is the key to efficient pain-free function. The technique to improve the normal function of your core muscles is to do some core stability and pelvic floor exercises. Although it is important to train the pelvic floor muscles and core muscles individually, they also work well together.
Exercises like planks and lower abdominal loading can be very beneficial for the core but must be done correctly.
Physiotherapists can advise you on how to do this and other exercises to engage these muscles correctly.
If you want to know more about how to train your core muscles then it is best to gain professional advice. Another good way to gain knowledge of how the core works and how to exercise safely is by finding a good Pilates class, preferably run by a Physiotherapist or specifically trained clinician.
If you would like advice on stabilising your core our physiotherapist and Pilates instructor Vicky Mynott & Gemma Miles can help.
