What do low back pain, hernias, incontinence, sciatica, pelvic pain and hip pain all have in common? CORE DYSFUNCTION!!!!
Would it surprise you if I told you a 60 year old female with incontinence, a 40 year old male with sciatica and a postpartum mom with a diastasis recti all suffer from the same root problem? Although they all present with a seemingly different case, the underlying issues are all the same- core dysfunction. Fix the core, fix the urinary leakage. Fix the core, fix the low back pain/ sciatica. Fix the core, fix the diastasis recti.
The deep core automatically functions to stabilize the spine, hold your pelvic and abdominal organs in place and keep you upright. Automatic being the key word here! The deep core is a group of deep abdominal muscles, deep back muscles, your pelvic floor and your diaphragm. In order for the deep core to function properly, all these muscles have to work together. If one group of muscles doesn’t work, another area in the body has to compensate. When we get multiple breaks in the system, your body can no longer compensate and we end up with pain, incontinence, hernias and dysfunction.
The good news is that all of this can be fixed with some dedicated effort. Your chiropractor can assess the function of your deep core. Determine if and where there is a break in the system and then help you to fix the root problem- core dysfunction.
If you are experiencing low back pain, sciatica, incontinence, hernias or diastasis recti it’s likely that you are suffering from a deep core dysfunction. Chiropractors at Dalhousie Health and Wellness are trained to asses your core dysfunction and discuss treatment options for getting your core back on track!
