Why Do We Use Stabilization Exercises?
The body is comprised of various connective tissues that support the joints of the body while still allowing for the movement necessary to allow for our activities. When the demand placed on the tissue exceeds its capacity to support the area, injury will occur. The body employs the use of muscle to augment the support of connective tissues. In fact, injury to the spine or other body areas is often related to a lack of muscular strength to support the demand being placed on that area by the various activities we perform throughout the day. Thus, stabilization exercises are necessary to help prevent the onset and recurrence of injury. It is therefore a necessary component of a comprehensive treatment regimen!
