Why Train Core For Knees?

April 18, 2018

Every hears that they should work their core and to keep a tight core when working out, which is true. Core strength is important to help the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities.

 

However not many people seem to mention the core when dealing with a lower extremity injury such as a knee or ankle. Research of recent has also shown that impaired core stability has the potential for for increased risk in lower extremity injuries in healthy athletes. Meaning having a stronger core can decrease the chances of injuries in not only the low back but knees and ankles as well. This is why in our clinic we we focus on core strength so much, to help prevent the injuries from reoccuring!
